Mamas that homeschool...
November 29, 2012 at 9:57 PM
Do you have to have a degree to do this? Sorry but I know absolutely nothing about it. I am terrified of sending my now 4 yo to school for 8 hrs next year. I think that's way too long for such a small child. He and I both have separation anxiety. Any advice??

    Nope no degree. What state do you live in? Laws vary by state. In most 5 year olds don't even have to go to school.

    Laws and rules vary by state. In my state, no, you do not need a degree.

    He loves k4 for the most part but to me 8 hrs is just too long for a 5 yr old. I live in a very small town so things like school violence are rare but I still worry!!

    LOL k12.com, its an online charter school. Half online school, half offline. They supply all the materials and its free, even a computer rental if needed. The kids can work at their own pace and if they want to go to public school they start in whatever grade they left off in from k12.com

    Thank you!! Apparently as long as I have a diploma I'm good to go. I'm going to think about it and decide. It tears my nerves up to think about leaving my baby with a stranger for that long!!
