TheHomeSchoolMom - The Show Me letter politely asks school officials to show where the law says the request for information is legally permissable

The "Show Me" Letter - Many an uninformed (or informed but overzealous) school administration official has asked local homeschoolers for more documentation than the state homeschool law requires. In The "Show Me" Letter, Shay Seaborne relates her experience with an overzealous official and how knowing the law and being polite but firm is often all it takes to educate local officials. A "must read" for new homeschoolers!

Homeschooling is regulated at the state level and changes may be made to the relevant statutes at any time.
