My family and I lived in Ohio for many years. My husband grew up there, and our son was born there. When it was time for him to begin school, we chose homeschooling.
Ohio is a wonderful state in which to homeschool. The laws are moderate and in recent years there has been concerted effort to make the homeschooling process even easier and more equitable for students.
While home education is legal in all 50 states, homeschooling laws vary from state to state. Each state has it’s own set of governing laws which dictate how a parent who chooses home education is to proceed.

Over the years as I’ve blogged about homeschooling and family, I’ve written about homeschooling life in Ohio.
If you are getting started homeschooling and need to know how to get started you can read Ohio Homeschooling Legalities, Notification and Assessments for the basics of how to get started.
For a more in-depth look I’ve written a guide that digs deeper into the process, as well as resources, tips and information that can help take you from a new Ohio Homeschooling with confidence.

We’ve homeschooled from the beginning. My oldest 2 will start 7th grade this year, and we have prek/k/grade school as well.
Oldest 2 starting 7th… Does that mean twins? Awesome, I’ve homeschooled since the beginning too, I think it’s the best!
We have homeschooled from the beginning also. Our oldest is 10.
Ours is 10. 🙂 It’s an interesting age.
It most certainly is! 🙂

Welcome to homeschooling! It is a great adventure. 🙂
Renee, are you planning another Homeschooling state by state post and link up again this year? You can email me because I have a couple of questions since I can’t find a contact me page. Thank you!
I am not planning such a link up. This one was a collaborative effort in which I participated. I’m not sure if those who organized it are planning one, but I’ll ask.
