Reasons to be an Exclusive Homeschool Group

A Production of the Ultimate Homeschool Podcast Network.

Sharing is caring!

Should public-school-at-home parents be joining your homeschool group? Or perhaps your group desires to be more exclusive and have all members be “independent” or “traditionally” homeschooling.


On the I Am a Homeschool Group Leader Facebook page, a question was asked about the pros and cons of mixing homeschool and public-school-at-home students in your group-or, put differently, being inclusive (open at all) or exclusive (limiting membership). Many homeschool leaders contributed their experiences and reason for their group’s decision. In this episode of the HomeschoolCPA podcast, Carol Topp will share some of the reasons that some groups are exclusive and do not allow public school students into their homeschool group including:


  • Leaders cannot serve everyone!
  • Overcrowding pre-schools or other activities in the homeschool group
  • Public school students have their own groups and support networks
  • It’s easier to be exclusive. There were too many disagreements in inclusive group
  • The group could lose a place in homeschool sports competitions if public school students are included


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.
