To find out what the legal requirements are in your state, check HSLDA, which is the Homeschool Legal Defense Association. http://www.hslda.org/laws/default.asp

"Like the previous poster said, you are also welcome to message me with questions & for resources any time." OR ME!
And, anon, no offense, but if your friend's son was way behind public school kids, then she was doing something wrong. Homeschool kids consistently score higher on aptitude tests than their public schooled peers. Not, my opinion, fact that you are welcome to research.

To anon---I home educated my three through high school. All are doing great--the oldest is working on her third degree, the middle son is in a supervisory position, and the youngest started college at 15,and was offered an opportunity to attend West Point after he joined the Army. It takes work and dedication--it is NOT an easy out of the public school schedule:-)
