You apply to the education system in your county for homeschooling. You can get the number from either a public school or the phone book under the Education secretary of your county. You can also do an internet search for "homeschool" and your county name. This will usually return a support group or the section in your county's public school system website that deals with homeschool. You must adhere to guidelines that are given by the state. Though the guidelines must be strictly adhered to, the guidelines themselves are generally not strict. Most states allow much freedom in homeschooling, requiring only a standardized test and portfolio or teacher evaluation yearly. Most states only require the main 5 subjects, and allow for freedom in how to carry out those requirements. For instance you may use library books, traditional textbooks, videos, online courses, hands on "real life" learning, paid courses and tutors, co-ops with other homeschoolers, or a combination of all of the above. You may choose your own books, methods, curricula, hours, and electives. It can be, with hard work and diligence, a wonderful experience for all involved and it also a well known fact that children that are homeschool have higher grade averages and often also learn unique skills that place them in a certain "niche." It can be almost free, using the library, textbook exchanges, the internet and community classes...or cost as much as a thousand dollars per child per year. If you join a support group, you will meet with other homeschoolers on a regular basis and go to places not afforded to public school children at your own discretion. Many homeschooled students take 5 or more educational field trips per year. There are as many ways to homeschool as there are 2 million homeschoolers, and parents must search to find the way that fits their own family. If one wishes to homeschool the first step is to join or contact a support group. Support groups quickly steer parents in the right direction for complying with the state, finding curriculum, setting goals, and maintaining healthy social activity. Usually the first year is a year of getting involved with the support group, sending a letter to your local school board, and trying out different styles of teaching and learning. After that one moves steadily toward the goal for the individual child. Support groups are the key first step.
