    Default Thinking about pulling my child out of Public School

    Hello all, My wife and I are very unhappy with the public school system, and would like to pull our daughter out of 1st grade and start homeschooling. We live in mid-Michigan and are trying to find links on the laws if we are allowed to do this mid year. Also when can you register for being a home school. I seen that if your not registered you may not be able to test at the public schools. We would like to be able to give our daughter the best education we can. We would also like to leave her the option to returning to a public school for high school. We are looking at buying the Time 4 Learning program to go along with our teaching. I have had my daughter try some of the demo's and for the first time I seen her light right up when she was learning, and she was also able to retain a lot more of it. Any and all help would be appreciated.

    Thanks and God Bless.

    Default Mid Michigan Schools

    Sounds like I am having the same problem as you... I have been talking to the school about it for weeks and we are switching my 5th grader to part time school/ part time home for the rest of this year to see if he will adjust well before completely removing him from public schools. I don't know why you are thinking of doing it but I have noticed that my son hates going to school and then having to come home and do 3-4 hours of homework at night because he always seems to be behind and discouraged. There is a lot of information for first time home schooling parents online https://www.time4learning.com/homesc...meschool.shtml

    But also MDE - Nonpublic & Home Schools

    To be honest, I do not think you have to register or anything. It's your choice what your child learns and your choice how fast they work through things.

    Hope this helps.

    Thank you

    I was wondering if you decided to pull your daughter out mid-year and what your process was if you did. We too live in mid-Michigan and would like to begin homeschooling my eight-year old daughter after Christmas break. I was told by another homeschooling mother that all was required of her was to send a letter to the school letting them know she was homeschooling to avoid truancy. That seems like an easy enough process but I want to get some other opinions and experiences on the matter.
    Thanks!
