Tami Fitzgerald of the North Carolina Family Values Coalition says because of the uncertainty of when schools will reopen because of the pandemic, many Tar Heel State parents are choosing to homeschool.

"Parents who were wanting to register to homeschool their children were unable to do so because the site was down," she tells OneNewsNow. "And that just shows you what an overwhelming response there's been to homeschooling."

In the evening hours of July 1st, the online system for filing a Notice of Intent to Establish a Home School explained, "The system is not currently available due to an overwhelming submission of Notices of Intent (NOI)."

Fitzgerald thinks public schools needlessly worry about the loss of revenue from the loss of students. But as she points out, their operating costs will also be reduced.

"Some parents are even discovering that they enjoy schooling their children themselves and that homeschooling is really a viable option, and in a lot of cases the best option," the family advocate relays.

LifeSiteNews reports that in addition to the registration website crash, a government spokesperson says there is also a staffing problem in processing that much paperwork.
