State board discusses home-schooling requirements

No, because then it would not be homeschooling. Do some research. there is plenty of evidence out there to show that Home School children place higher on tests than public school children. The reason being... If they are using a good curriculum, they are pushed by both the parents and the curriculum to excel.

State board discusses home-schooling requirements

To Be honest... (Not to be rude)... But that isn't any of your business. Nor is it the business of the School Board. We Home school our Children and are proud of it. I would say 16 years of College Education makes me more than qualified to teach my children. However, that is a non issue. The issue is More and More people are taking their children out of the Public school environment and it is disturbing to the school board because they are loosing money. It Cost us over $800 a year to Home school our children. They take weekly, quarterly, and yearly progress tests. As well as tests at the beginning of the year to make sure they are where they should be. If the Public school kids were tested as much as our children are tested, maybe the over all grades of the public schools would come up.
