Blurring Lines of What is Homeschooling

Blurring Lines of What is Homeschooling with Carol Topp, CPAOn the I Am a Homeschool Group Leader Facebook page, a question was asked about being an inclusive group (open at all) or exclusive group (limiting membership). Many homeschool leaders contributed their experiences and reason for their group’s decision. Carol shared those views in Episodes # 129 and #130 which you can find here:

Reasons to be an Inclusive Homeschool Group

Reasons to be an Exclusive Homeschool Group

 

In this episode of the HomeschoolCPA podcast, Carol Topp will share some of the reasons that some groups are exclusive (they do not allow public school students into their homeschool group) but it comes from a few people who are active in legislation or in their state homeschool groups. They have a different viewpoint that you may find insightful and interesting.

These state homeschool leaders mentioned:

  • The lines of what is legally homeschooling are blurring and state legislators may not understand the difference between traditional/independent homeschooling and public-school-at-home.
  • There is a concern of government control and oversight (as seen in some states like Alaska and Kentucky)
  • There is a concern of being grouped with charter schools or public school funding and therefore be subject to more government oversight (as proposed in Indiana and Hawaii)

 

In the podcast Carol mentioned the Facebook  group for homeschool leaders I am a Homeschool Group Leader. Join 400+ homeschool leaders for ideas, encouragement and respective exchange of ideas. https://www.facebook.com/groups/72534255742/
