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.

How much does it cost in Missouri to homeschool a child?

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.)

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.
