bulletThe most important thing to do before you make the decison to homeschool is to find out what your state/local laws are regarding homeschooling. Every state is different and you need to know exactly what your state laws are. You must stay in compliance with those state laws or criminal charges of educational neglect could be filed against you. It has happened to people all over the United States (you can find those cases listed on the HSLDA website link below). In most cases, if you keep all the records required, as set by your state laws, the charges are usually dropped when records and proof of students work are produced.

Visit HSLDA Website The Home School Legal Defense Association is a non-profit organization made up of a team of Attorneys who lobby and represent homeschooling families all over the United States in court if the unfortunate occasion arises. You must join and become a member in order to use their services, although as stated on their website, they do represent non-member cases only if they feel their case is a real a threat to the foundation of home-schooling. The fee is $100.00 per year and usually if you become a member of your state organization(s) they offer a discount of only $85.00 to join, if that organizaiton is a participant. It is highly recommended that all homeschooling families join this very important service. Please take the time to visit their website, the information is very important.
