Texas is the friendliest state towards homeschoolers. We are thriving! Each year, we gain more families and more wisdom. However, there are some who would like to outlaw homeschooling and they continue to try to turn Texas’ support away from homeschoolers. If you want more info on how to keep Texas free, click here.
