Homeschooling Facts

Roadschooling and Getting Started on Homeschooling

Homeschooling facts: Getting started on homeschooling is easier than you think, and is necessary if you are planning on extended family travel. Homeschooling problems can be avoided by starting before you leave. Here are some roadschooling tips and free homeschooling stuff from RV Travel with Kids.

Ironically, it seems that many of those who RV travel with kids full-time are already homeschoolers before they make the decision to become families on the road. Whether it is that overall spirit of trying something new or it's a desire to not conform to society, or something else that drives us, heres to many happy adventures.

Getting Started on Homeschooling

For those new to homeschooling, here are some homeschooling facts to help you get started. Teaching your child is not as hard as you might think. If you potty trained your child, then you are capable of teaching. (And I can tell you, in some situations, teaching a child to read is a heck of a lot easier than teaching him to use the toilet.)

homeschooling-facts-02; stack of homeschooling books The following homeschooling facts and free homeschooling stuff should answer most of your getting started questions, but if you have more, the world of homeschooling is immense.

Try a google search of your state and the word "homeschooling" and you will find local families who have done it for years.

  • What State Do You Call Home?

    The homeschooling laws and regulations you need to follow will vary by state.

    homeschooling-facts-04; map outline of homeschooling laws by state For homeschooling facts, this would be the state you call your domicile, not the state you are currently in, which is another reason why it is extremely important that you call only one state home.

    The following links describe the different domicile and homeschooling regulations by state.

    If you don't like the state's laws that you are officially from, then you may decide to consider a different state home.

    We like Texas.
