 Is Homeschooling legal?

Without a doubt, homeschooling is legal in all the 50 States of

the U.s. But, that is just about where the similarity ends. Laws 

and regulations regarding homeschooling vary from state to state. 

Interpretations of these laws can vary from scholl district to 

school district. Additionally, these laws may change every year. 

The National Home Education network is a wonderful resource when 

it comes to the legalities of homeschooling. It has a listing of 

the actual state laws for each state in the U.S. Reading the laws 

that pertain to your state is perhaps the best way to get accurate 

information about these laws. But, most people need to get the 

laws interpreted by a qualified attorney. You can get valuable 

information from the support group at your locality. Additionally, 

many state education departments have online resources that will 

help you in interpreting the state requirements for homeschooling. 

The internet is also a good source of information. 

It is a good idea to check out your state laws regarding 

homeschooling before you start educating your child at home. This 

will prevent any nasty surprises on the way. If you have to move, 

you will need to be aware of any tests or exams that your child 

may need to take.
