  • Why not look into a cyber school? It will provide all the books and materials, and in some cases, a computer.

  • First step would be to check out the laws regarding homeschooling inn Mexico. Homeschooling is LEGAL in EVERY state in the USA, but for other countries it can be ILLEGAL! So you'll want to check out the laws for Mexico. If it turns out to be ILLEGAL in Mexico (I have NO IDEA what the homeschooling laws are there) then you have to find out if there would be an exemption for you. Why are you living in Mexico? Are you still USA citizens? etc. All those thing may effect your abilities to homeschool legally in Mexico.

  • Do you mean New Mexico? If so, start with HSLDA and check your state government page as well. You may also want to join Happy Homeschoolers.
