Laws Concerning Homeschooling

The following informational links to sites that discuss homeschooling laws are not meant to constitute legal advice. You should contact your local homeschool support groups and state department of education for the most current information regarding homeschooling in your State or Province. Most public libraries have information about local support groups. We recommend that you begin by contacting these groups since some education sites do not encourage homeschooling. It is important that you both read the actual law and read interpretations of those laws from informed personnel (such as homeschooling groups).

This listing of organizations and links does not constitute an endorsement of any particular group by Mott Media, L.L.C. or any of its divisions.
