Connecticut homeschooling law

Doris Hohensee <> writes:

Connecticut has a neat equivalency law which allows homeschooling as the first choice:

All parents and those who have the care of children shall bring them up in some lawful and honest employment and instruct them or cause them to be instructed in reading, writing, spelling, English grammar, geography, arithmetic, and United States history and in citizenship, including a study of the town, state and federal governments.
