You can participate in free online homeschooling by using free homeschooling curriculum, free homeschooling worksheets, and free homeschool resources.
One of the more popular sources of free online programs is virtual homeschooling. Virtual education involves using a public charter school program to teach children at home.
Children are actually enrolled in public school, and are taught by certified public school teachers through computer-based courses, teleconferences, instant messaging, and e-mail. All necessary materials, including books and computers, are provided to students free of charge.
Two of the largest virtual school providers are Connections Academy and K-12. Although these charter schools are growing in popularity, they are less flexible and require more government oversight than independent homeschool programs. Some homeschoolers are also concerned that increased use of these programs may lead to more government intervention in home schools.
For this reason, many parents choose to forgo virtual public schools, and take advantage of the many internet resources available for free homeschooling online.
