Do you need a College Degree to Homeschool?

Hi I have been told that when the child is above Elementary school level that you must have a college degree is this true?

    That's awesome, knowledge really is power. Self doubt is normal, and i believe it can help us be better teachers. Just think of it like this - 

    When we experience such doubts, we do more research, try different techniques, ask for assistance, etc. Whereas most PS teachers have all the confidence in the world, rarely experience doubt, and more often than not fall into a pattern of repetition (just think of how many teachers teach the same for decades). Maybe if they experienced some self doubt they'd improve too?

    Quoting Sebastian662:

    Thank you.

    I just reviewed the Homeschool blogs suggested through this forum. 

    My confidence is growing to make my case.


    Knowledge is power.

    Thanks again.

    Nope. I believe a state (maybe Washington?) requires that, but not in most states.

    Here in Georgia, parents or the person a parent selects to do the homeschooling must have a HS diploma or GED. It is written into the law that way. You should just check into the state in which you reside.

    Goodness No!  I dropped out of college to start a family.  Many people are not fully educated on homeschooling.  I've had people tell me I need to be "certified" (whatever that means!).  One of the most importants tools to have is full knowledge of your state laws.  Most states have very reasonable laws.
