How much does homeschooling cost?

User Avatar
Cost of Homeschooling Studies prove homeschoolers who spend $500 on education are just as smart as those who spend $200. If you are considering homeschooling, I would suggest buying used (Amazon, eBay, yard sales) and for even greater savings, in the younger grades you can combine art, history, English, and spelling together for free. (This is called a "Unit Study", and can be personalized around a child's interest) Here are more opinions and answers from other Wiki s contributors: I homeschool my children and people ask me this question often. It is hard to give a definite answer. You can spend a lot or only a little. It is totally up to you. You can buy expensive pre-packaged curriculum. Or you can design your own and save a lot of money. You can buy used textbooks at educational/homeschooling stores. You can buy them at yard sales. You can pay $15 a month for Internet service and get a WEALTH of information there. There are SO MANY web sites that have free worksheets, games, and all sorts of educational things. You can take advantage of your local public library for many resources such as books, CD-Roms, videos, DVDs, etc. There are many free places to go for fun field trips. It's really all up to you to decide how much you want to spend! I am homeschooled, and it costs about $3,000 a year but this includes lessons that would normally not be included in school such as horseback riding (an excellent form of exercise), and Irish Dance (another great form of exercise -- especially for the legs). I do distance courses from JHU CTY (Center for Talented Youth) and this is the bulk of that figure. I homeschool my kids for the high school years and it only cost $599.00. It ends up being a really nice program they ship all your books out to you and they are yours to keep. In most cases there are 'hidden' costs. For example, a parent who would otherwise earn an income may stay at home in order to homeschool the children and earn nothing or very little. Such costs should be included in any rigorous assessment of the real cost. It depends on how many children you're homeschooling. You may be able to get the books needed from the public system cheaper that directly from the state. You will most likely want to take them on excursions outside the home for learning experiences, so join the library, free, and a museum for family, usually 50/60 dollars. See if there are any science centers in your state and they may be on the reciprocal list for the museum and you'll either get in free or at a greatly reduced price. You would have meals in any event so that's really not a consideration unless you eat out. Call the Department of Education in your state or contact the Administration office of your public school and they can give you more info and help. NORMALLY IT IS £10 TO £100 IN ENGLAND/LONDON. I am homeschooled. I go to Online high-school and it is completely free, there is also another k-12 program that is completely free. The program i am on is called advanced academics.

Asked in State Laws, Maryland, Lions

Can you own a lion in Maryland?

User Avatar
No. Lions like many other wild animals are classified as "dangerous animals" under state law, which includes any "member of the cat family other than the domestic cat" or a hybrid of such weighing more than 30 pounds. Any person possessing such an animal must be a federally licensed exhibitor (typically a public zoo) or must possess a permit of some sort from the Department of Natural Resources. There is an old myth about Maryland laws that "it is illegal to take a lion to the movies." There is no such law anywhere, but rather the illegality of doing that action is simply implied by the fact that owning one in the first place is illegal, and taking one into public in such a manner would violate the terms of any permit, not to mention the broad criminal act of reckless endangerment.
Asked in Colonial America, Maryland, Climatology and Climate Changes

What was the climate of colonial Maryland?

User Avatar
It was much the same as it is today with major variations between the Appalachian Mountains in the west (a subtropical highland climate) and the Atlantic Coastal Plains (with a humid subtropical climate). There are 4 distinct seasons, with relatively hot, humid summers and cool or cold winters, with snowfall ranging from a foot or less on the eastern shore to over 100 inches in the mountains. Precipitation averages 40-50 inches annually around the state and is evenly distributed; Colonial Maryland likely experienced a climate very similar to this.

Asked in Divorce and Marriage Law, Maryland, South Carolina

Where do you file for a divorce if you were married in Florida and now reside in New Jersey?

User Avatar
Answer A person(s) file for a divorce in the state where they reside. Marriage and divorce decrees are shared venues between states. Meaning if a marriage is legal in Florida it is legal in N.J. and the dissolution of the marriage can occur in N.J. Answer You can only file for divorce in FL if you are a current resident and have been living there for at least six months. If you have been in NJ for at least one year, you can file in NJ.

Asked in Maryland

What were some of the jobs that Maryland had in the 1600's and early 1700's?

User Avatar
Maryland grow Tobacco. The first people that come to the colony grow Tobacco and sold what they grow to survive when they first come to the new world. Tobacco was a large sale in England. England always wanted more of it, So settlers grow and sold tobacco. England was the main source of buyers of the tobacco. Until the Indians become another source. The English made deals with the Indians to grow tobacco. The English and native people become close but there was still fights between the to groups of people. But as we know today the English win these fights. By the mid 1600's like 1656 Maryland become one of the top growers of tobacco. The settlers there became rich and Maryland was on its way to becoming a great economic base. This also answer the Question: In the making of Maryland how did the colony Maryland sell to make money and what did they sell?
