People choose to homeschool their children for a variety of reasons. Maybe they want their child to focus on a certain part of the curriculum. Maybe their child has special needs. Maybe their child has a hard time learning in a classroom environment.

But whatever the reason, there are still guidelines for how a child can be homeschooled.

But who gets to decide what those regulations are? And how are they enforced?

This is the first in a series of shows pitched and selected by you, our listeners. We’ll be spotlighting them all through January.
