I have wanted to home-school for a while and the recent school shootings have made me want to even more. Then add that fact that a student took a gun to school today at the high school my husband and I attended hits way too close to home for me. I don't feel my children are safe in public school. The thing that is really holding me back is that we are poor. My husband works full time and is currently attending classes full time at our local community college with plans to transfer to a university after completing his associate degree. We have four children, three are in school and the youngest will be four soon. Right now I am a stay at home mom. Is it possible for a family that is below poverty level to home-school?
