Is Homeschooling legal in the US?
Homeschooling in the United States constitutes the education for about 3.4% of U.S. students (around 2 million students). It is a subject of legal debate; not about the right to homeschool but about the amount of state regulation and help that can or should be expected. <wikipedia>
Homeschooling is legal in all fifty states, but requirements vary from state to state and are often inadequate to safeguard children’s interests.
UNSCHOOLING IN HONG KONG: A CASE STUDY
published in Journal of Unschooling and Alternative Learning 2016 - Vol. 10 Issue 20.
Although homeschooling, and more recently, unschooling, is slowly gaining acceptance in the United States; unschooling in Hong Kong is rare and considered risky. The Educational Bureau of Hong Kong (EDB) tends to discourage alternative forms of education, believing that traditional schooling is the best way to educate students. This case study focuses on the unschooling experience of Karen Chow and her family. Karen is one of the first individuals to choose to unschool her children in Hong Kong. She is also the founder and executive member of EDiversity.org, an organization focused on rethinking education and educational alternatives in Hong Kong.
