Homeschooling - What Are the Rules?

Families all over the country have removed their children from public schools choosing instead to homeschool in increasing numbers over the last two years, but does every parent qualify to homeschool their child?  Our last blog focused on the notable rise in homeschooling which, according to statistics, has doubled over the last two years.  In fact, the president of the Texas Homeschool Coalition, Tim Lambert, stated “In 2020 we saw the largest surge in homeschooling in history. It appears that renewed concern about COVID-19 may be about to replicate a similar trend for 2021.”  This week’s blog will key in on what the legal requirements are for homeschooling, particularly in Texas, and what rules are in place for parents who homeschool their children.
