Learn about these laws, along with information on different methods of homeschooling, support groups, local and state events, and much, much more.

Quote of the Day Back to Top
A school is a hopper into which children are heaved while they are still young and tender; therein they are pressed into certain standard shapes and covered from head to heels with official rubber-stamps.

Am I Qualified to Teach My Own?
Michael Leppert
This is one of the most elementary questions that parents ask when contemplating whether to homeschool or not. Most of us assume that school teaching requires skills that we mere parents do not possess because we have not been trained. But the seasoned homeschool parent realizes that these skillshave more to do with crowd-control and the imparting and monitoring of knowledge to 30 or 45 children that are not one’s own. In most homeschooling households, the student-teacher ratio is 2:1 or 3:1 at most. Any teacher would love to work in such an environment! Plus, discipline should not be as much a problem for a parent as it is for a teacher.
