How much flexibility do you have in evaluating your child’s work?

We all know the common process of doling out grades, setting grade levels, and handing out diplomas, but do you have to do all this in the same way a traditional school does? Or do you have more freedom in determining your son or daughter’s progress in school? HSLDA Staff Attorney Mike Donnelly will explore this topic in the live e-vent “Homeschooling: Not a School at Home!” You’ll get a glimpse of the wide world open to you as a home educator—from assessing the academic achievements of your student to meeting the requirements of your state’s law. This presentation is quickly filling up, so sign up now to get your chance to join the live e-vent!
