What Is Home Schooling
The term 'home schooling' basically refers to the process in which one or more children of not
more than 2 families are instructed by parents or legal guardians, or a member of either
household. The laws that define home schooling vary from State to State. The legal
requirements for establishing a homeschool also vary with the State.

great alternative.
Are you qualified to take on home schooling for your children? Teaching is a continuation of
your own learning process. With the advent of the internet, information is aplenty. There are
various books and resources for those interested in home schooling. Go through the ...
