2 million students in homeschooling

A nontraditional movement goes mainstream, embracing many of the trappings of the graduation season. http://nyti.ms/kYD0cI

As home-schooling has grown to reach about two million children — or 3 percent of the school-age population, up from 850,000 in 1999 — it has become more mainstream. And just as more home-school families now join co-ops offering weekly field trips and chemistry labs or use the local public school for sports, band or a class, so too do many of them embrace all the trappings of graduation season.

I’m not sure where the NYT number comes from.
