The BIG QUESTIONS on most everyone's mind when they first consider homeschooling or are starting their first year usually include:
Is homeschooling legal?
How do I get started?
Do I have to be a certified teacher?
What about socialization?
If you are wrestling with any (or all) of these questions, we respectfully refer you to Home School Legal Defense Association.
