  • You can go to: You can find your state and what requirements you need to meet to homeschool. I homeschool my 16yr old son and we are under an Umbrella School so the State has NO say so over what I do. I do not have to ever answer to them.

  • I'm thinking homeschooling your child isn't in their best interest? Seems you should go back to school for grammar and spelling! Sheesh!

  • I agree with the previous poster - I think homeschooling might not be the best option for you after reading your post. No offense to you personally, but what's really in the best interest of the child?

    Might I suggest if they have half-time programs within your school district? Maybe your child could go to school on certain days, and homeschool certain days - that way there would be a proper balance between public and home education. Also, there are places within certain communities where they teach groups of homeschooled kids a few times a week - sort of like a part-time private school. It'll cost you, but well worth it if you do not have a teacher's certification.

  • My daughter grad HS 2 yrs early, at that time she was already a sophomore in college with a 4.0 GPA. We homeschooled her the 6th grade at the same time she was in 5th grade, and then gradually got her ahead after that. At the time we used correspondence courses, but towards the end of her HS she took online dual-credit classes through online state colleges. She is not some over-the-top smart person, we just knew how to do the right things to keep her busy and get her ahead.
    Find out if there is a homeschooling group in your area where different families swap different subjects - for instance one family teaches Language Arts/English/Lit, while another family teaches Science/Math, then there is PE, and yet another family teaches Music, or the Arts, or foreign languages - and don't forget about field all swap houses at certain times on certain days so all your children get a rounded education.
