We use a charter homeschool program and i just ordered a ton of posterboard, crayons, posterboard markers, presentation boards, ink for my printer, some books, a telescope, and some other art supplies. I still have about $600 left to spend before April! Just have to decide what to get.
I'm just excited and wanted to tell someone

Well I'm not going to go call a friend right now. There really isn't anything controversial besides cm crazies making it so.

How is this on the governments dime and why do they give you so much money?

Wait, what? How do I sign up? I homeschool and everything we buy is out of pocket.

The government pays the school for my child to attend just like they pay public school for most (ids to attend. The school keeps part for campus, library, teachers, etc and gives us some for educational expenses. Everything i order has to be for my child's education i can't just go buy junk.

Look for charter homeschools in your area. They are all different though so you'd want to check into how they do things.

I didn't know the government subsidized homeschooling. It doesn't strike me as the best use of taxpayer dollars provided that safe traditional schooling is readily accessible in the area.
