Top 5 States: Texas Overtakes California
Wed Jun 04, 08 6:02 pm
As of June 3, 2008, the HSA membership rolls indicate that the greatest homeschool graduate population concentrations are in the following states:
- #1 Missouri.
- #2 Texas.
- #3 California.
- #4 Oregon.
- #5 Tennessee.
For a real-time report of the number of homeschoolers in each state see the following: Alumni Network Population Distribution by State
HSA has observed an astonishing and unprecidented historic moment here at the Top 5 States Headquarters. Texas
(#2) has sprinted ahead of California
(#3) and seized the coveted #2 position...a spot California
(#3) has securely held since the very beginning of the Top 5 States Reports! Speculation abounds on the response by California
(#3), no doubt taken completely unawares by this change in position. Will California
(#3) quietly concede its place to Texas
(#2), or will we begin to see increased enlistment in California's
(#3) roll numbers? With a 14-point lead, it would not
appear that Texas
(#2) is going anywhere, but perhaps California
(#3) has a slick game plan up her sleeve. Next month's numbers will tell the tale.
(#6) and Tennessee
(#5) have been engaged in a drama of their own. Tennessee
(#5) has once again snatched the #5 position out of Colorado's
(#6) hands, achieving their place in the Top 5 this month! Colorado
(#6) only 3 points behind, could
turn the tables on its long-time rival in July by recruiting only 4 additional graduates to HomeschoolALUMNI.org. But will they? Check back next month to find out.
The Top 5 positions aren't the only ones making news! Washington
(#9) is warmly welcomed as the 9th member of the prestigious 100+ Club, having reached 101 members during the month of May. Congratulations, Washington
The Gold Medal for greatest increase in HSA members is awarded to Texas
(#2) with an increase of 23 additional graduates from May 2 to June 3. Missouri
(#1) goes home with the Silver Medal with an expansion of 11 new graduate members, and Tennessee
(#5) earns the Bronze Medal by enlarging their numbers by 10 homeschooled graduates.
Be sure to turn up here next month to discover whether California
(#3) will contend for its former #2 position! Will Colorado
(#6) clamber over Tennessee
(#5) to earn a place in the Top 5 again, or will Tennessee
(#5) hold firm? Who will win the Gold Medal for most graduates recruited in the month of June?
Check back for all these answers and more in next month's Top Five Report. Until then, go tell the homeschool graduates in your area about HSA. We hope to see your state next in the Top 5!
