The forecast for my state has them cutting even MORE from the budget next year. My son's teacher already lost one aide for this year,and has to figure out how to get 3 grades of kids to classes with 2 people. Until someone figures out how to be in 2 places at once,they're screwed. I'll be asking if i can volunteer my time this year.
SOOOO,I'm thinking of possibly pulling him from the school system as of next year,and doing an online program with him.
Due to his autism,he is not anywhere near his peers in school work,so what'd he's be learning would not be out of the realm of what i know.
I was thinking maybe the K12 program?

I think there are a few states that require a college degree, but generally speaking, no you don't need one to homeschool. You can go to hslda.org and find out the exact laws and requirements for your state. I personally am not impressed by the online schools like K12, but the great thing about homeschooling is that you don't have to do what everyone else does - you can do what works for you and your family. :D

I have found that when parents do this... they are often supported by the public school teachers.... the teachers are very aware that the system sucks. MY good friend just did this and all of the teachers offered to help her. Giving her access to the teacher resources, they have offered her curriculum, and even an hour in the classroom on subjects that mom may not be totally up to par on.
You can do it! I think you would be great :0).

Of course you can
Here's a list of groups who may be able to help you work out the pros and cons
TBH some of the smartest people I know were hoeschooled by people who only had a HS degree
