How Do We Protect Our Homeschooling Freedoms?
There are five main things that you can do, as a homeschooler in Wisconsin, to protect homeschooling freedoms.
- Know the history of homeschooling in Wisconsin and why homeschooling in Wisconsin is unique.
- Know the law and homeschool responsibly. Do what is required of homeschoolers and no more.
- Do not push for additional legislation for homeschoolers. Legislation is often amended and rarely passes in the condition that it was introduced.
- Do not ask for favors from the government. Favors and money from the government naturally come with oversight and regulation.
- Contact your legislators throughout the year to let them know that homeschooling is working in Wisconsin, and that homeschoolers do not support any changes to Wisconsin’s reasonable homeschooling law.
