It all depends on your budget. Now that you can do almost anything on the Internet, you can actually homeschool for as little as it costs to run your computer on the internet, printer ink, paper, and research hours to create your own curriculum. It can also be as expensive as you want it to be if you buy all teacher's guides (not always necessary), student books and optional supplies. There are options for correspondence schools that test and grade your child and do all the record keeping for you. These can be quite expensive. You can find some at less of an expense if you research different ones on the internet. Also available are video and satellite schools. These also tend to be more expensive. You can also do combinations of these different styles. Many do a notebooking method, where the student gleans information from a variety of sources and then creates a notebook utilizing this information Others do unit studies, combining all classes into units focusing on one main topic. The best way to decide is to do a search on homeschooling or sign up on a few yahoo homeschooling groups and discuss the costs with other homeschooling parents. There is a wealth of information to be gleaned from these groups. I hope this helped you out a little.

Not a thing in Michigan. All it needs is your time, and that isn't much when you consider the benefits

I'm sure it depends on what curriculum you choose. I don't live in Missouri, but as far as I know I don't think any states charge to homeschool - I don't think that would be legal. Some states are more strict than others about requirements for homeschoolers though. There is probably some kind of independent support group in Missouri you could contact. If you can't find that, you might try doing a Google search for the Homeschool Legal Defense Fund. They should have information about your state or who you could contact with your questions. I homeschool in Missouri and it doesn't cost anything but the cost of materials.

You don't hire homeschool teachers. If you are the parent of a child and you decide to homeschool them, it means that you are taking on the responsibility of being their teacher. Otherwise, it's a tutor. (I speak from my own personal knowledge - I'm a homeschooled kid.)

You can find very important info at http://www.time4learning.com/homeschool/homeschooling_in_kentucky.shtml. You can also find a book at http://www.amazon.com/Homeschooling-Your-Child-Step-Step/dp/0761535888. You will need to do portfolios, lessons and much others.

Yes, there are. There are schools much like regular school where the child will have homework due on certain days.

It depends on the book and where you buy it. Homeschool workbooks and textbooks can cost anywhere from a few dollars (for an early elementary workbook) to a few hundred dollars (for a high school textbook or an 'all-in-one' curriculum). Many homeschool parents join co-op groups where they can buy or trade used books with other homeschool families in order to save money. Many books are also found at libraries, used book stores, and thrift shops.

As much as the judge decides.

Whatever the fine might cost, the ultimate cost could be the life of the child!

You will need to know how much it can change your life, if your qualified to homeschool, and how much time you will spend doing it each day.

Not really, it would help though. You pretty much have to grade their work according to the answer key (which may not be 100% correct). Of course, you need some skill of tutoring to help your child understand what he/she is learning.

Thousands of dollars. Then Thousands more. If you split up with your girlfriend, you would still have to make support payments until the child is 18.

It is usually free. c also - How much does it cost the government to educate a child? - unanswered at the moment.

User Avatar

The average cost is about $1,000 per month. You can lower your true cost by using a child care FSA.

Regardless of where you live, it is still expensive to raise a child.

Homeschool can be free, or it can cost thousands of dollars. It really just depends on what you want to do. If you want to put effort into searching for free resources and piecing together your own curriculum, you could homeschool for practically nothing. If you want to use a full curriculum that has been put together for you, you can spend hundreds or thousands of dollars buying that program complete with the supplies - just open the box and go. If you feel the need to hire a professional teacher or tutor to teach your children in your home, the cost will be even higher. Studies have shown that most homeschooling parents in the United States spend about $300-600 per year per child on school supplies, books, curriculum, software, field trips, and other school related items. The cost is generally higher for high school students than elementary students.

Parents homeschool their teens for a variety of reasons. Some children have different learning styles, and homeschooling allows for customized processes. Others homeschool to remove their child from circumstances where teachers or social pressures are having a negative effect. Some, like myself, choose to homeschool because it allows the children to follow their own interests and often learn at a much faster pace. My son, 16, is currently learning trigonometry, not from a book, but from game programming. This flexibility is simply not possible in an institutionalized environment.
