Michigan is known as having a positive legal environment for homeschoolers. But homeschooling is more than just meeting the legal requirements. It takes committment, support, and lots of information. We've compiled the best ideas, tips, and resources for parents home educating in Michigan, and have made them accessible and easy to find.

Am I Qualified to Teach My Own?
Gary Grammar
The differences in teaching a classroom full of children and one's own children are marked. This article discusses how the love and attention from one's own parent can make all the difference and why a home-teaching parent has a clear advantage over the school teacher.
Math-U-See
Math-U-See is designed to teach students specific skills that build as the student progresses. This systematic and cumulative approach uses a definite, logical sequence of concept instruction. The Math-U-See system is structured with step-by-step procedures for introducing, reviewing, practicing, and mastering concepts. Each lesson teaches using multi-sensory tools such as videos, manipulatives, and other resources, designed to appeal to any type of learner. With these resources, they are able to adapt to a variety of homeschool styles.

Don't Panic--How to Choose a Curriculum

The Myth of Teacher Qualifications
Chris Klicka
Most education officials publicly claim that teachers need special “qualifications” in order to be effective. As a result, public education organizations often promote legislation or an interpretation of the law which would require home school parents to have one of three qualifications: 1) a teacher certificate, 2) a college degree, or 3) pass a “teacher’s exam.” Although this seems reasonable on the surface, such requirements not only violate the right of parents to teach their children as guaranteed by the First and Fourteenth Amendments, but virtually all academic research documents that there is no positive correlation between teacher qualifications (especially teacher certification requirements) and student performance.
