Abstract: The purpose of this study was to analyze the extent to which state statutes offer some regulation of the curricula offered in home schooling situations. A further purpose was to analyze court decisions which have had some impact on the curricula of home schools. The analysis of statutes showed that all fifty states have provisions which allow home schooling. Twenty-three states have passed laws specifically related to home schooling. Eighteen states allow home schooling by approval of a governmental agency or body. Home schooling is allowed in two states by case law and in one state by Attorney General's ruling. The remaining six states have statutes that allow home schooling by either licensure or registration as a private religious school or "other acceptable means of education."
