    Default Would you still homeschool in Washington if it became illegal?

    What would you do? Move? Do it anyways? Ignore the law? Fight for your right to homeschool your child?

    No, I wouldn't homeschool if it was illegal. We plan to move in a few years anyway, but I wouldn't up and leave because I wasn't allowed to homeschool. If I was forced to send my children to a substandard school, I would raise a big fuss, but homeschool vs. public school isn't a deal breaker for me.

    All of the ABOVE! I would move, fight to change the laws and continue to do what I feel is best for my children no matter what. If I were to end up in jail for it, so be it!

    I wouldn't homeschool because it was ILLEGAL! Part of teaching my kids at home is showing them that we are obeying the law. I like our local public schools but I wouldn't be opposed to just moving if I really felt strongly. We are always up for a new adventure!

    We are a part of a church that has a big homeschooling population. I think our first option would be to start a private school at church?? I have to say, I would prob be tempted to homeschool underground. There were many pioneers here in Washington state who went through a lot of stuff (and homeschooled "illegally") to get us to where we are today. I would fight tooth and nail to keep those freedoms! Wouldn't want to see their effort be for nothing...in just 20 or so short years!

    Default If homeschooling were illegal

    I would continue homeschooling and fight that law. As an American citizen I have the right to educate my child as I see fit and right. Take that right away and you're looking at communism/socialism--not in my country. Yes, we are told to obey rulers, but we are not told to roll over for them. Just like I would not stop worshipping God the way I do because a government told me to. What is to stop them from taking other rights away?

    Go on, girl! (or boy)...I agree with you.
