What does it mean to homeschool?

Homeschooling is educating children at home with educational materials and content chosen by parents. The instruction of children is most typically done by parents, and sometimes with the help of private tutors. Homeschooling in many developed countries is a widely accepted and legal alternative to public school or private education. (Note that some places may categorize homeschooling as a form of private education.) In the United States, homeschooling is a legal option for parents who wish to educate their children in a different learning environment than what exists within the schools of the community. Different states in the U.S. have different legal requirements if children are to be homeschooled. Homeschooling is also often an alternative for families living in remote or rural areas.
