There are over 2 million children being homeschooled and it continues to grow in popularity. There are many reasons that parents give for homeschooling their children. The most popular reason is to have the ability to provide religious or moral instruction, followed by a concern about the school environment such as safety, drugs, or negative peer pressure. Additional reasons include dissatisfaction with academic instruction, and needing more family time.

Parents also cite the desire to provide their children with a nontraditional approach to education. To this end Standard Deviants Light Speed supports homeschoolers by offering comprehensive video courses to teach both curriculum subjects and test prep. Standard Deviants programming covers the most difficult elementary school, middle school, high school and college courses–their DVDs provide a “fun approach to serious education”.

The Light Speed rapid-fire approach keeps students engaged while the cast of young actors, humorous skits, mnemonics, and on-screen graphics present step-by-step examples to teach students the essentials to master a subject. Because the actors are young, students can relate to them. Plus, the actors are funny–everyone appreciates a little humor!
