I am interested in HS my 8 yo. She is in 3rd grade now and all is great but there are many things I disagree with at her school. She has mentioned that she would love to stay home with me but it is not all about that. She is the top student in her class and is very sociable. I just feel she would be better with me at times where I can control the "cookie cutter" agenda from manipulating her life. Often times, she comes home and tells me how her school is preaching ways kids should behave and I have seen first hand how tightly scheduled the days are. The children are not even able to talk in the cafeteria at lunchtime!! Many of them are like little robots and that is just scary to me!!
So any advice from moms who do it or who have been there would be great. Like what kind of certification do I need, if any? How many hours a day should I dedicate to it? etc.

Those are the homeschool laws for Arkansas. No required days, no required subjects, no required certifications. You have to give a written notice 14 days prior to withdrawling...to the superintendent or school board (I'm trying to remember what I read so read it yourself to be sure).
