Abstract

Throughout history homeschoo11ng has been an alternative to the public education provided by the state. Recently states have been called upon to modify their requirements for alternative forms of education. Proponents of homeschooling are resistant to compulsory education and teacher certification laws imposed by some states. They also cite rights guaranteed by the Constitution as support for U-1e desire to educate their children at home. Critics, however, are concerned about a lack of socialization and the possibility of narrow-minded learning taking place with home educated students. School officials are burdened with the loss of financial support due to the decrease in numbers of children attending their schools. The possible solution to this controversy appears to be in a working compromise between parents, educators, and state officials.
