Facebook is an excellent resource for home schooling families. Numerous groups are set up specifically for home schoolers to learn from each other, share curriculum ideas, and support each other. One of my favorites is the Hip Homeschool Moms Community.
One thing I've noticed, though, is that people new to home schooling or who are considering it always ask what the laws are in their State. People who are moving from one State to another seek the laws in their new State. Sometimes, even home schoolers who have been doing it for a while don't fully understand their own State's laws.
I feel it's important to have access to the laws on home schooling for the States in which we each live. We ought to be intimately familiar with them in order to be prepared for any scenario in which our right to home school may come into question.
My family is in New York State, so most of the information in my blog posts revolves around the regulations here, but I thought it might be helpful to other home schoolers, especially newbies, to have a single place to access the laws in any State they may desire. To that end, I put together a list of links for all 50 states and Washington D.C.
This list is not intended to serve as legal advice or counsel. It is merely a tool to assist you in learning about your State's home education laws and regulations. If you have any questions regarding any of the laws, you should contact home school friendly legal counsel, such as the Home School Legal Defense Assocation (HSLDA).
The links for the States listed in red do not lead directly to that State's Department of Education website for one of two reasons. Either, (1) that State does not regulate home education, or (2) no information on home education could be found by me on their website. Instead, those links lead to other, trustworthy websites with information on the home education regulations for those States.
I hope you find this useful. Please feel free to contact me with any errors or broken links you may come across.
