Home-schooling • Some families organize their home-school the same as a traditional school, with the children studying the same subjects the same way as public school students. • Some families use the opposite approach and "un-school" their children-a far less structured approach where the children’s schedule is determined by their interests and readiness. • Many parents pick and choose the classes and materials that meet their children’s needs.
Who home-schools their children? • Most home-schoolers are just normal parents who have decided to take charge of their children’s education.
Is home-schooling legal? • Home-schooling is legal in all fifty states and throughout Canada. • Home-schooling is also becoming increasingly popular in Australia, New Zealand, England, and Japan. • However, every state and province has its own laws regarding home-schooling. • Some home-schooling laws merely require you to let your local school district know that you will be home-schooling your children. • Some laws require you to fill out paperwork as if you were a private school.
Costs of home-schooling • You could home-school for free using public resources like libraries, PBS shows, museums, the Internet, and hand-me-down educational supplies. • Home-schooling costs are higher for teenagers than for elementary school students, and fees are normally charged on a per unit basis. • Additional funding for extracurricular activities. • Since home-schooled children have more time, they tend to participate in more of these activities.
