Know Your State Homeschool Law
Could you do me a favor? Before you start your new homeschool year, can you quick run over to your state homeschool law, and check it out for me?
If your neighbors are doing something that seems a little strange and wacky, don't just follow them blindly. 9 times out of 10, they are assuming that something they see in their local public school is somehow encoded into law.
Do me this one favor. When faced with some weird requirement, ask the question I learned in church. Ask your friends "Where is it written?"
If it's written in the state public education law, chances are it does not apply to you. Look up your state homeschool law, and see what that says. Don't just follow the crowd.
