Why there are no "Christian" listings here
I've occasionally been asked why I don't have a Christian (Protestant) page listed here. Do I have something against Christians? No.

However, Christians are a big block within the homeschooling community. Many regions have numerous support groups - and all are Christian, whether overtly (ie with a Statement Of Faith and all) or not. For example, many non-Christians have found that local "broad" or "secular" groups tolerate non-Christian members but reserve all responsible positions for Christians.

That is, I see non-Christian homeschoolers - whether religious, agnostic, or atheist - as widespread, but often in the local minority. A farflung community I need to do outreach to.

Quick Tips
Homeschooling is legal in all 50 states
However, rules and regulations vary from state to state, county to county, and district to district. I am not an expert on regional rules. If you have a question about how to homeschool legally, ask someone near you - not me.
Outside the US
Laws tend to be less homeschool-friendly. There are definitely countries where only US military personnel and their children can homeschool legally. My coverage here is pretty skimpy - I'd love to have more non-US pages to list.
Stale link?
Some websites - especially the ones on 'free' servers - move around an awful lot. If they don't tell me, I don't know - and, to be fair, sometimes they do tell me, and I'm too busy to update my pages.

If a link doesn't work, try Google. Just copy the group's name, and paste it into Google's search box. You'll be amazed at how often this works - I used this technique a lot when I updated pages for the Oct02 refresh.
