So I have decided to definitely home school my Preschooler, starting next year, but I also have two 13 year old's(7th grade), and a 15 year old(9th grade), that I would love to home school. I feel that making my teenagers be home-schooled after, attending public school all their life may be to much. So I have let them, as of now make their own choice. Sadly the school district that we moved to 2 years ago is awful. The 2013, state testing, scores were beyond belief (Math -0%, and Reading40%). The kids are horrible, disrespectful, and crude. Home school has kind of become my only option.
I just have a ton of questions, and all the researching I have done, just confuses me more. I am aware of my state laws, which basically says I have a right to teach my child anyway I want, I don't even have to report to anyone, as long as I show proof that I am teaching them the basics, which I am assuming proof means records. So that is my next concern, keeping proper records. Where do I start, what is the first thing I should do?
