Greetings all,

I am a Vermont native looking to move back home in the next 6-18 months. Currently we live in Florida homeschooling my oldest, augmenting with some of the electives through the public school. My younger kids won't be school age until after we move back to VT, and I am just trying to get a feel for the homeschooling experience back home. Not so much the different legal requirements between the two states, I have already begun to research that, but more of real world experiences with homeschooling and support. My wife is a teacher working on her masters degree, and no, being a teacher is not a requirement to homeschool here in FL. It just kind of worked out for us as our family began to grow.

I have relatives in VT, and they are under the impression that homeschooling is taking off like crazy in VT. I am assuming that this depends on what part of VT and the school systems that they are near.

Thanks in advance for any input or resources that you can suggest.

no replies!

we have a 6 month old, so we have a few years to think about this.

I have no idea what to do. I hated school and couldn't imagine putting our child through that. I don't know if school in VT is different than NJ.

I thought that home schooling is pretty big here.

It feel like it would really be advantageous to get together with 15 other people of similar ages who are home schooling and try to work something out???

Lots of people do it, and in Vermont it isn't necessarily just religious fundamentalists.

Here's the Ed Department's page on homeschooling:Programs & Services : Home Study
