    Default Texas Homeschool Requirements

    Is There anyone in Texas who knows about the Texas Home school Requirements? I just started my 10 year old 5th grade son on this program and any bit of help and advice is appreciated!!



    Thanks,

    Texas requires teaching reading, spelling, grammar, mathematics, and a study of good citizenship.

    The Texas Homeschool Coalition has a website and the FAQ section has a lot of information. Here is the link...

    Hope it helps!

    I saw that, thank you. I suppose there is no exact requirement for the number of hours? tests? or assignments? That question still lingers. I've tried finding laws on home schooling in Texas but the coalition's website is all i have found.

    No exact requirement. Texas is the land of the FREE!

    I recommend finding a local support group. Also, check out thehomescholar.com

    Not aware of homeschoolers in Texas doing the TAKS. The Stanford Achievement Test is preferred due to the fact that it is a NATIONAL test, not a Texas Test (Texas does not have the best reputation for educating children, so why compare your student to Texas public schoolers?). You can get information about the Stanford Achievement Test through any local private school. You would need to sign up around February/March timeframe and take the test around April.

    All that I was told was that I had to fill out and get the school to fill out a withdrawal forms. I was also told that it was a great idea to get the homeschool defense league on your side.
