We homeschool our kids and they are both ahead of their public school counterparts. As for requirements, it all depends on where you live. For example, we are in Oklahoma and do not participate in any of the state testing nor are we required to teach to their curriculum. I like that because while we do include the state standards (so that the girls will never be "behind") there just isn't enough to them to fill a whole year for us, and while fine arts may be in the standards, no elem school is required to teach it. Homeschooling is work and does take discipline on the part of the parent. Sure there are going to be days when your kids want to sleep in, but there is nothing wrong with that. We complete all of our subjects everyday in nearly half the time it takes the public school kids to accomplish less, so who cares if they sleep in once in a while? I would be happy to give you more info if you are interested (c:
