  • i believe you can register your home as a "private school" or i believe that is how it is in arkansas. just look up homeschooling in your state. but you should have to register your daughter so you dont get in trouble for keeping her out of school. most have a deadline, so get on it or you'll have to send her this semester. good luck. i'll be homeschooling my kids, and am about to start some preschool stuff with my 3 year old.

  • look into

    They are a public online school k-12 and they take all the hassle out of home schoolong. You get free books and supplies (you still need folders and paper and such) and a complete lesson plan that is written out and tells what you need to do every step of the way. Plus you can contact her teacher for any problems. We love it.

  • Well my typos aren't very good advertising for home schooling, are they? :)

    I just wanted to add that you would sign her up just like at your regular public school, but there are deadlines to meet.

  • It really depends on the state, but in all 50 states there is a legal way to homeschool, you just have to figure out the laws. The hslda web site is a really good place to start.
