I only have a GED. I am praying about wheter I should home school. I have researched alot of things. When I went to the hslda site. It gave me 3 options. The way that I understand it is that I have to have a degree to do 9 -12. Is this right?
Blessings
Renee

Yes, a bachelor's. However, if you look at option 2, you'll see that you can still homeschool 9-12 with a high school diploma or GED if you operate your homeschool under a church school. My advice is to contact your state / local homeschool organizations and see if they can recommend a church school near you, since this will be by far the easiest option for you.

Theodore,
I dont understand being under a church school. Can you explain? I did click on the link you gave me. I contacted someone in my area. Maybe they will be able to help me.
Thanks so much
Renee

A lot of churches organize a church school, which as the name suggests, is a school run by a religious organization. Since homeschools operating under the oversight of a church school in TN don't have to meet as stringent a set of requirements, this is a good option to go with if you have a church school in your area. The school's oversight is generally the bare minimum to fulfill the requirements of the law.
