It depends greatly on the family and the state laws; in PA, the laws are very rigid and require a lot of paperwork as evidence that the schooling requirements are being fulfilled. In Florida, there are so few laws that you could get away with filling a page or so whenever you feel like it, with virtually zero accountability to the school system.

There are some families that are extremely neat and organised; they do all of their work on a schedule and complete extra credis assignments left and right, while others barely get the minimum required amount of schoolwork done.

My personal experience is that homeschooling allows more focus on the skills needed for success in the world and for the student's desired future occupation. The hours are reasonable, and if you need to eat or use the restroom, you don't have to wait for the end of class or lunchtime. ;)

I don't know about some, but even though I am a year and a half behind in school (I just started late, I didn't fall back), I score post-high school in all subjects except math on the state standardized tests, so you can see that homeschooling does much to improve your mind, even without long hours of studying boring textbooks.

Any other questions, or did I type your ears off? :P

Boring or not, I would rather do it at home. That would be ALOT better. Unschooling looks pretty good too.

Here, there are like no laws. But we're pretty organized anyway.

I went to France last year for 6 months to learn how to speak it (my mom is french) so now I'm doing a mail-in french school-thing. Lol. You send in all your tests every 2 weeks about (English, I don't even do the lessons, I just take the tests :D) But I take an online math class that is pretty advanced. It can be confusing at times, but thats the subject I'm pretty good in. sometimes it gets annoying cause it's hard to understand though. :D
But next year I might stop the french mail-in thing, cause then I'll be in high school, my mom says we'll do that a bit differently.
Without the mail-in thing, I don't focus on that many subjects, but I do a lot of science, math (and french I'll do next year), and maybe something else.

Why is your mother teaching you? I just read my books and take tests and such. Only thing my mother is involved in is sending my grade to the State.

my mom teachs me too, probly cuz she know's it's the only way anything will happen. I do history on my own, but that's about it. =D

I live in cali, and the laws aren't extremely harsh, although we had a scare last year with a lawsuit. All my mom has to do is turn in an affidavit I think. I take another class outside of home, and then I do a science co-op. My class outside of home is the hardest but the most fun. I like being around other people so I like it, but it might be different for others. I'm in 8th grade, but some of the stuff we're doing is like junior level in high school. And I believe it too.

I live in the uk and every year a person will come round and check our work. I have loads of friends who are homeschooled! You can still do your GCSEs, im doing a IGSCE in ICT, plus you can have loads more lego building time!!! So overall its not a bad thing!
