    1.1 million American children are now taking their lessons at home

    HESPERIA — Jennifer Prentiss has home-schooled her son either through a charter school program or on her own since he started kindergarten.

    Her son is now 10 years old and she wouldn't have done it any other way.

    "He works at his own pace," Prentiss said.

    Prentiss had a bad experience during her school days and didn't want the same for her son. She had to repeat kindergarten and second grade. Even when she didn't understand the lessons her teachers pressed on, and she often felt stupid.
