I believe anybody can afford to homeschool. Of course homeschooling highschoolers, and maybe junior highers can get expensive because they need a more formal education then the elementary level. If parents are homeschooling elementary school students then not much money is needed. This is because you can easily teach them all they need to know and more without the help of textbooks, etc. You can take your kids on a weekly trip to the library. Most homeschooled students learn a lot from just reading books of their choice from the library. The library is filled with books that will get kid's brains working. If your kids love to read fiction, that's great, but make sure they look through those non-fiction aisles too. You can take your kids on field trips, get a family pass to your local science museum. This pass should get you to not only get into that museum free, but hundreds of other science museums and children's museums in the US and in other parts of the world. Kids love to explore the world around them, they love field trips. Take your kids on nature walks, make sure they bring paper and pencils to take notes on, or draw what they see on. This will improve kid's drawing skills of nature, and also their appreciation and understanding of nature. The internet is a great resource for homeschoolers! With the internet you can find great resources and websites for homeschooling your kids. This is also another great way for kids to teach themselves. Kids love to learn on kids' homework helper websites etc. This is also a great way for them to do research for a report they are making. Keep those kids writing! Creative writing, report writing, biography writing, diary writing, log writing, nature study journal, etc. encourage it all! Hopefully this has sparkled up some creativity in your mind on how you can homeschool your kids with spending practically no money! p.s. Some of these ideas come from the Charlotte Mason curriculum.
absolutely not. Education is a requirement a law..be it private, public or homeschool. Parents do not get paid or funded to homeschool their children nor are their any tax break for homeschoolers.

No. Your parents are legally responsible for your education until you are 18. This means that if they say they are 'homeschooling' you, then they are required to provide you with a suitable teacher (either themselves or another adult) you cannot homeschool yourself, although you can follow a homeschool program or curriculum which was provided by your parents by yourself.
There are many free resources to help parents develop their own homeschool curricula. Many states will provide a free list of sources used in public schools if parents request one from the state Department of Education. The American Homeschool Association can put parents in touch with resources, and there are hundreds of websites devoted to offering parents and teachers free or highly discounted lesson plans, worksheets, and more.
Absolutely! However, many single parents choose not to do this, due to the need to work to support their family.
Yes. Your parents can say that they are homeschooling and then hire a certified teacher to teach you. Parents who are also certified teachers may homeschool their own children as well. However, in most places this is not required and parents may teach their children without any degree or legal certification.
Homeschooling laws are set by individual states. In some states a person other than a parent can be your homeschool "teacher". You can find these state laws at the Home School Legal Defense Association website.

There are lots of reasons parents choose to homeschool their children. A lot of places offer homeschool support group meetings for parents and their children where they can meet once a week or whenever the group decides to have meetings. Here the children can socialize with other homeschooled children, go on field trips. And the parents can get tips and ideas and support to help them in their homeschooling.

Homeschooling can be done online with great effectiveness. If your child works best in an environment outside of traditional public schools, but you cannot afford a tutor or cannot teach him/her yourself, online programs can provide a solution. Many online charter schools are free, but there are also a host of free resources online for homeschool students, which parents can use to create curricula, engage with other homeschool families, and get legal help if need.
Homeschool microscopes are microscopes used by students who attend homeschool, and they are easy to use. They cost around $300 to $400.
