Mainstream acceptance of homsechooling; when did it happen?

As if to symbolize the mainstream acceptance of homeschooling, the U.S. news magazine Newsweek devoted a cover story to the topic in 1998, giving explicit instructions to parents on how to begin homeschooling, and the United States Senate passed a resolution declaring September 19, 1999 “National Home Education Week.”
