In the following news story, the public-school-at-home program is called “homeschooling.”
In-home education is in style, 23 May 2007, Nevada Appeal, Carson City, Nevada
Zabell is a student through Twin Ridges, a charter-based homeschool program in Truckee.
Just out of curiosity, I checked for Nevada homeschooling information to see if Nevada was an ‘anything goes’ state, or not.
24. A charter or other public school is offering “education at home” where I educate my child at home and they provide the supplies, correspondence program and/or computer program with a licensed teacher to help periodically. Is this homeschooling?
No. These schools are governed by Nevada Revised Statutes other than NRS 392.070 which is specific to homeschoolers. Under Nevada law and regulation a parent of a homeschooled child takes full responsibility to assure that their child will receive equivalent instruction. Charter and public schools operate under other Nevada laws and regulations and have other requirements. Some charter and public schools offer Independent Study programs and Distance Education programs where children who are enrolled in those schools receive education at home.
Apparently, it’s a ‘not.’
