Homeschool InformationWritten by Mary Joyce
Getting Started With Homeschooling. Before jumping into all decisions surrounding actual teaching and homeschooling of your child such as: what curriculum, what books, what materials, home school calendar, organize this, organize that…. Before you do any of that first get familiar with with this bit of homeschool information.....your state’s home school laws, rules, and other regulations. Some states are quite easy and others require much more work. The HSLDA (Home School Legal Defense Association) is a great place to start. Legally you do have right to homeschool your child. Just make certain you comply with individual state’s regulations.

Plus, nobody would argue against a one to one teaching relationship between teacher and pupil and for vast number of cases this is exactly teaching environment in homeschool classroom.
