There is a lot of controversy surrounding homeschooling, mostly by those who do not understand that homeschooling these days are not just a secluded child with no social interaction. Unfortunately, with negative attention, it is important to make sure that you homeschool in the most legal way possible. You can do this through the Homeschooling Legal Defense Association. Here they will educate you on your state requirements here. I also encourage you to join them through their website:Homeschool Legal Defense Assocation (HSLDA). They will support you, if you ever were to run into legal issues, I am not paid advertiser of them, just a very thankful customer of theirs.
