Homeschool Regulations & Legal Issues

When first deciding to homeschool, you may be surprised to discover that in some parts of the United States, there are many rules and regulations that govern that decision. In fact, in some of the most restrictive states, your plan for home education must be approved before you can begin. If you are homeschooling for special education, there are even more regulations to follow, as your homeschool environment is governed by IDEA, just as any school environment would be. This can work both in your favor, by opening up opportunities for therapies your child may need, as well as requiring some regular documentation and paperwork to ensure the student is in the most appropriate educational placement.
