Getting Your Homeschooling Approved By The State

Aug 17, 2007
While most parents would choose public school education for their children, some are choosing the road less taken - homeschooling.. Home schooling, prevalent prior the inception of formalized school systems, is making a return to the mainstream because some parents either do not approve of the curriculum of school systems or are even against the idea of formalized school systems, or find themselves holding greater capacity to educate their children in the best possible manner.

You may be interested in homeschooling your child, and you have your own reasons for doing it. Like picking a school for your child, making the decision to home school requires a lot of consideration. For many reasons, certain guidelines are set by the state or local education offices before you can actually home school your children. Majority of states in the United States would require a legal minimum of state notification of your intention to home school your child. In a rare few (including Texas, Alaska, Missouri, Illinois, and Oklahoma, among others), you may go on ahead with home schooling your child without informing the state.

Later on, during the period when your child is already being home schooled, some states may require for you to submit to them evaluation scores, attendance records (states may require a minimum number of 'school' days for home school too) and even test scores.

It is important for you to find out the different requirements for homeschooling in your state or country. It will help you make sure that once you home school your child, your child's education is actually being recognized by the state. Without state approval, your home schooling may not be regarded, which may increase the difficulty for your child to move on to a university or college.

The state may be able to provide you with various forms and guidebooks for you to home school your children. Homeschooled children are required a marginal number of steps that regular applicants are not required to take in order to qualify for their chosen university. Moreover, by visiting your local education authority, you will also get to find out the various state and local government scholarships for which your child may or may not be able to qualify just because they are homeschooled.

Make a visit to your state or local government education office in order to make an educated decision, and in order to get the approval you'd need to push through with home schooling your child.
