Here in Texas we are blessed the Law is pretty simple

I’d suggest reading this before pulling a child out of school

Remember when dealing with the government it can be a bit tricky. Stand your ground politely and have a bit more ready than you think you will need. Smile

 

The first thing I would tell anyone planning on Homeschooling is to relax, take a deep breath. You are not Public Schooling your child at home you are homeschooling. Believe it or not that is a very different thing. You have no need for busy work or cramming for a test. Your goal is to educate your child. You have your base curriculum set for you by the state.

  • Reading
  • Spelling
  • Grammar
  • Mathematics
  • Good citizenship.

 

Don’t go at this as if you are driving your child to school every day. Yes set goals, yes test for comprehension (but that doesn’t mean a full blown sit at a desk test all the time). Learn with your child and ask questions.

 

So I’ll try to post some more after a bit of research but I’d suggest going back to the THSC page and pressing Getting Started.
