Top 5 States: Deadheat Between Oregon & Tennessee!
Sat Dec 01, 07 1:13 pm
As of December 1, 2007, the HSA membership roles indicate that the greatest homeschool alumni population concentrations are in the following states:
- #1 Missouri.
- #2 California.
- #3 Texas.
- #4 Illinois.
- #5 Tennessee.
For a real-time report of the number of homeschoolers in each state see the following: Alumni Network Population Distribution by State
What is quickly becoming an epic rivalry between Oregon
(#6) and Tennessee
(#5) has reached a heightened tension point this month. Both states are now tied
neck-and-neck at 97 graduates...is this a stalemate, or will one state break free and overtake the other? Only time...
(#5) and Oregon
(#6) are both only 3 recruitments away from earning their standing with the few states that can boast 100+ members.
The Gold Medal for greatest increase in alumni members is awarded to the great state of Texas
(#3) with 13 additional graduates from November 1 to December 1. (This is a first-time Gold Medal triumph for Texas
(#1) and California
(#2) are tied for the Silver Medal with an increase of 9 graduates each. Ohio
(#8 ) and Washington
(#10) are tied for the Bronze Medal with an increase of 7 graduates each.
This month has also exposed a mystery. The 1 graduate from Puerto Rico
has vanished. Speculation abounds, but two conceivable theories have gained the most attention. The first theory is that the solitary homeschool graduate, overcome with loneliness, immigrated to Missouri
(#1) for abundant homeschool camaraderie. The second theory is purported to involve the Bermuda Triangle.
Return to this report next month to learn if Oregon
(#6) will forge ahead and wrest itself out of the deadlock with Tennessee
(#5) and establish its former supremacy (a distant memory?) in the Top 5 States. Who will win the Gold Medal for most graduates recruited in the month of December? Will we ever
discover the true fate of the lone graduate from Puerto Rico
Check back for all these answers and more in next month's Top Five Report. In the interval, go tell the homeschool graduates in your
state about HSA. We hope to see your state next in the Top 5!
