Homeschooling is a legal option for parents to educate their children at home rather than attending a private or government school. It is INDEPENDENT of the public school system and its funding. What homeschooling is NOT: Programs such as alternate education programs where parents educate children at home, but with funding and oversight from the public school system, are not homeschooling. They are public school programs which allow parents to educate at home. Charter schools are not homeschooling. They are taxpayer funded. Homeschooling and public education are mutually exclusive. By its very nature, homeschooling implies familial control rather than state control. Home Schooling K through 12 Education Reference.
- Wikipedia: Homeschooling, also known as home education, is the education of children inside the home. Home education is usually conducted by a parent or tutor.
