  • No, I think some states you can get a tax break for doing so(for expenses incurred) but not paid.

    At least not that I have found.

  • No
    Homeschooling is your choice. You cannot receive a wage for something that is available "free" from the public

  • Paid? No.

    However there are some states that will allow you to use a virtual charter school, and provide materials free of charge - some of which will need to be returned. You would still be expected to pay for all travel costs and consumable materials like paper, pencils, etc.

  • This is too ridiculous to answer.

    OK I will. NO.

  • No. That's why the government funds a public education system. If you choose to opt out of that, it's on you.
