Do you need a teaching degree to teach your child at home?
Do you need a teaching degree to homeschool? The answer is NO! Now some states do require you to have a person with a teaching degree to come in and test you and your child to make sure you are doing your job and your child is learning what they should. I live in a state where this is not required and the only requirement is that you have to tell the state you are going to homeschool your child. So again check your state laws and the best thing is to talk to other homeschool parents from your state to see what they do.
Here are some links to help:

- A-2-Z homeschooling laws
- Texas Homeschooling – great for full time families
- Wikipedia – homeschooling laws
- about.com – homeschool laws by state
Warning… This post is my opinion you need to check local and state laws in the area where you are a resident.
