Every state has different laws regarding home school. The best site we’ve seen that has each state’s laws and a collection of support groups and co-ops at a local level is the Home School Legal Defense Association. They have a wealth of information that we recommend you read to get started in your state. https://hslda.org

Accountability / Support
Monkeebooks is run by a home school family. We know the importance of coming along side other families for support, accountability and strength. We have purposefully built in a group locator so that you can find other families in your local area that you can connect with, develop friendships and walk the home school road together. If you cannot find a group in your area to do park days or co-ops – please consider starting your own group.
