Homeschooling in Texas Statewide:

Is it Legal? ABSOLUTELY!

TheHomeSchoolMom's local resource listings are sponsored by Time4Learning, where you can find resources, support groups, test prep info, and more.

The court case of Leeper v. Arlington ISD is the basis for our right to homeschool in Texas. It establishes that homeschools are private schools. Private schools are not regulated in Texas, as our state constitution (Article 7 Sec 2) only authorizes the legislature to establish and maintain public schools, not private or parochial schools.
