Homeschooling in Tennessee

 We are in California, but my mom asked tonight about good options out there.  A friend of hers wants to homeschool.  I have heard k12 out there is not a good option, is there homeschool charter schools that anyone would suggest or any laws I need to be aware of to give them.

We want to move out of Florida and took Tennessee off of our list of possibilities specifically because they have jerky HS laws. Checking the state laws would be the first step, of course. I believe I also had issues with their vax laws, like they make it impossible to legally HS without having your kids jabbed, but PS kids can waive shots, or something like that. It's been a while since I checked it.

Thanks. I know I read on the k12 sites that they are a horrible choice so I am trying to figure that out for my mom's friend. I sent what I could find last night and we will see what they choose. I also offered To look up more and help as much as possible. Blew

But I think I told my husband when we started this journey we could not homeschool there.

We are in Tennessee, and my daughter is enrolled in TNVA.  I like it, but I think it may be because her teacher is so awesome. There have been many changes this year that many people have complained about; however, her teacher has done an excellent job of implementing them in a rather painless way.  She had the same teacher last year for kindergarten and this year for 1st, and I'm well aware that my experience probably does not reflect that of most people.

When using an umbrella you do NOT have to show proof of vax I'm in TN and my daughter is in kindergarten and has not had any shots..and we only had to put down a loose idea of what we are doing for the year...we are piecing together curriculum this year and doing allot of hands on things :-)
