I highly encourage you, as you begin researching the possibility of home education, that you read through the
HSLDA website. They have necessary information concerning the legal aspect of homeschooling your children. I encourage it, also, because I want folks that homeschool to keep it legal and on the up&up. There are always bad apples, but HS within the law makes us all look responsible. We will keep our freedoms if we keep our sensibilities about us.
HSLDA also keep you informed as to legal HS battles in your state and if you join they will be the legal advice you need or legal counsel necessary should your HS rights be jeopardized. So please, check them out, read them up, and be aware of is going on.
