Growing up on a small dairy farm in Wisconsin, I had never heard of homeschooling. Until recently, I thought this was because of the small community in which I was raised or, perhaps, the complexity of farm life. After all, most of my childhood consisted of working in the crop fields, caring for animals, milking cows, cooking, cleaning, tending to our garden, or attending school. After studying the history of homeschooling, however, I realized that most families throughout the 1970's likely didn't know homeschooling was an option. Compared to the 11.1% of children being homeschooled across the United States in 2020, only .03% of children were homeschooled at that time.

BJU Press Homeschool has given my children an excellent education. I chose this curriculum to teach my boys math, history, and grammar. I expected them to learn science, handwriting, spelling. But I got more. Much more.

One of the many benefits of homeschooling is focusing on what's important to your family. For many homeschooling families, teaching children to serve in the community, in the church, and the home are essential life skills and a way to demonstrate the love of Christ.

When my boys were in elementary school, I made up a few sayings to help them understand the attitudes they needed to cultivate in their hearts. This is one of those sayings: “Sometimes school is like chocolate pudding, and sometimes it's like carrot sticks.” To which this baby carrot generation asked, "What are carrot sticks?"

Have you ever felt like there is so much to do and so little time? That can easily happen to us homeschool moms and dads. We try to school our children while we still run the household, and it can feel very chaotic at times. One of the best ways to combat this is through planning and organization. A productive homeschool day takes planning. I’m going to share with you some tips and tools I use to plan and organize, and maybe they will be helpful to you.

We homeschool moms start the school year with high expectations and a pretty new planner. We break out our favorite pens and write out a week (or a month) of color-coded lesson plans. Some of us tackle the daunting task of tearing apart workbooks and collating the work into 180 tidy little daily packets.

History of Homeschooling in Nebraska 

Learning about other parents who had to fight for homeschooling rights and what they had to go through has made me grateful for the homeschool freedoms we enjoy today. 

 

Homeschooling wasn't always legal in Nebraska. In the 1970s and early 1980s, some parents were concerned with their children's education and chose to homeschool. However, Nebraska's state laws required schools to have state accreditation and approval. In addition, all teachers had to be certified. As a result, some homeschool parents faced prosecution. Thankfully, the State Board of Education approved Rule 13 in 1984, which enabled parents to homeschool, provided periodic testing and visitation. In 1987, homeschools became exempt from state accreditation, approval, testing, and home visits.

Which state guarantees the right to homeschool as part of its state constitution?

 

If you guessed Oklahoma, you would be correct!

 

In 1907, language was added to Article 13, Section 4 of the Oklahoma State Constitution, for the specific purpose of protecting parents’ right to choose to homeschool their children. So, it would make sense that Oklahoma’s home education laws are straightforward and easy to follow.
