The Law of Homeschooling is a resource guide that provides information on recent updates to homeschool statutory and regulatory requirements for all fifty states as well as Washington D.C. This publication takes an in-depth look at each state’s legal requirements under which parents may provide a home-based education to their children.
Confusion over homeschooling law exists within a vast realm of subject areas. This resource guide answers those questions. The publication is intended to be used by parents, students, homeschool advocates, and public school officials to do what is in the best interests of the children: to ensure that each child receives an appropriate education within the context and scope of the law.

  3. For $36.50? Are they kidding? I can get all that info for free just by Googling.

    And how exactly will this guide be “used by homeschool advocates and public school officials to do what is in the interest of children, collectively and individually, and will help to ensure that each child receives an appropriate education within the context and scope of the law”?

    Since I am in Dayton, I may just have to go knock on someone’s door.

  4. Maybe they googled?

    What I was concerned about was that information was taken from the state governmental agencies, as opposed to state law. (In IL’s case, there is no state law regarding homeschooling. We’re considered private schools via a 1950 Supreme Court case.

    I’d like to know if they contacted legal homeschool advocates. CA advocates like Debbie Schwarzer have been front and center in nat’l news regarding homeschool issues. That would be hard to miss.
