Here is an excerpt from the new Home Schooling information webpage:
âIt was only in the late 17th century that compulsory education began in the West. This was a concept the early settlers brought with them to America. Families moving out from the east coast to settle the virgin lands to the west were basically on their own and what little education was available to children was given by the parents. But schools soon followed and by the end of the 19th century, schooling was available to most American children. However, by the middle of the 20th century, people were beginning to question the prevailing education system and the type of learning it imparted. It was at this time that the concept of home schooling emerged, or to be historically accurate, re-emerged.
So what exactly is home schooling? It is basically an alternative to institutional (regular school) education in which the family, as a unit, works together to impart knowledge and learning to the children. Home schooling is legal in all the fifty states and while the specifics of the rules and regulations governing this form of education differ from state to state, in general the parents have freedom to choose when, how and what their children will study, subject to the end result being that the children have certain minimum levels of knowledge is various subjects.â
