What is HSLDA?
Home School Legal Defense Accosiation is a nonprofit advocacy organization established to defend and advance the constitutional right of parents to direct the education of their children and to protect family freedoms.
"If your child has been attending public school and you plan to begin homeschooling, one of the first steps you need to take is to officially withdraw your child from his or her school. Requirements for withdrawing your child from public school may vary from state to state. The best way to ensure a smooth transition is to become familiar with your state's laws and regulations regarding withdrawal."
1. Get parent permission
2. Find the closest publlic school to your house
3. Register at the school
- you need birth certificate, one or both parents to attend meeting with you, and your social security card.

P.S. I turned out remotely "normal."
1. Homeschooling only works for some people; true.
2. Children do not learn what they need to at home because they do not concentrate.
3. There is a lack of social skills
4. Buckle under deadlines and competition; not ready for real world
5. Opt out of sending children to school; establishes laziness
6. Parents aren't educated enough
7. Certain things can only be learned at school
8. School can provide therapy and special help
9. Children don't want to stay home with mom or dad ALL day
10. Parents are raising robots/nerds (can't just be children)

Positive opinions on HOMESCHOOLING:
The three most commonly used methods of assessment are standardized testing, evaluation, and portfolio submission.

** However in some states, the law may require that you periodically demonstrate academic progress. Some states require standardized testing whiles others may allow for a teacher letter or some other form of evaluation.
1. Better equipped to communicate with adults, not just children their own age. (It builds social skills)
2. Plenty of interaction (it depends on how dedicated you are to it. Are you part of a homeschool group? co op?
3. Can do activities outside of "school"
4. Allows freedom of religion...not sheltered.
5. Can be more fun than traditional school; more hands-on!
6. Can be creative with teaching methods (change it up weekly)
7. No "rules"
8. Encourages children to think outside the box
