    Default Can I homeschool another family's child?

    I'm looking to homeschool another family's child along with my own. The parents will be paying me a fee for my services. I want to use this money to help pay for expenses we'll have with homeschooling. We live in wisconsin and I'm not sure what the laws say about this topic. Can anyone help?

    Hi, Kelly.

    I don't live in Wisconsin. In Florida the law does no allow me to homeschool another family's child. A parent must be the primary educator for a home-educated child.

    I did find this link for Wisconsin's home education law. Because you're taking on the responsibility of educating someone else's child, I'd probably confirm or go directly to the HomeSchool Legal Defense Association. I would trust their interpretation of the law.

    Good luck to you!

    Post Wisconsin Homeschool Law

    Section 115.0
    1 Definitions
    based private educational
    program” means a program of educational instruction
    provided to a child by the child’s parent or
    guardian or by a person designated by the parent or guardian. An instructional program provided
    to more than one family unit does not constitute a home
    based private educational program
    So how I understand this to be is you can only homeschool your own children. You can hire a tutor to come in and help teach your children only. However you cant homeschool your own children and another families child.
