Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions,
and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all who are
in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all
godliness and reverence. ~1 Timothy 2:1-2
Because home schools are considered private schools in Texas, the
administrators (parents) of home schools have the ability to determine
the requirements for graduation for its students just as any other private
school. The Leeper vs. Arlington ISD court case decided what home school curriculum requirements would
be. These are:
to have a curriculum (written down plan) which teaches the following
the curriculum/lessons must be in visual form (books, workbooks, videos),
and must be pursued in a bona fide manner.
We may use, borrow, or purchase curriculum materials from an outside source or develop curriculum of our own.
We may also send our children to the home of another parent for instruction or have a tutor come
into our family's home for all or part of the children's instruction.
