Discussions and Resources for Arkansas Homeschoolers
Homeschooling is regulated at the state level and changes may be made to the relevant statutes at any time. Always consult the actual state code for the most up to date and accurate legal information with regard to homeschooling. The links provided below contain information that may or may not be current.
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!
