My neighbor has five kids, she's taken her kids out of school to home school them. She says she can home school them on-line for like $15 a month. Really? I've looked into home schooling when my kids were younger, it was like $2500 - 3000 a year.
Are there no regulations on home schooling? I cannot believe she can do this to her kids. My kids go to a private school, that was my choice for them. BUT I could never just pull them out of public school and say I'm home schooling them for $15 a month.
I live in Texas, so what happens they have to take the TASK test to get a depolima?

no fees in most states, and they even give out computers if you need one to be able to do it. It's online public school
what does the price matter? Is someone a better person just because they spend more money on their kids? I don't think so!

Each state has it's own laws. Private online schools are paid for by the state in AZ where we live now. Not only is the tuition free (K-12) but you also get a free laptop. I homeschoooled my kids in IN. The only law was you had to keep attendance. No laws or rules about what to cover. Teen graduated with HS diploma when parent said they graduated, no tests or GED. You can say you are homeschooling and do nothing (unschooling) and it be legal. Like it or not.

Students don't even have to take standardized tests to get into college. My kids got into all the colleges they applied to without taking the SATs. All 3 are going to college. One took the GED the others didn't. One went to Purdue and one IU.
