A friend asked me what was involved in getting 'approval' for home education by the DHS. She's in MI and I have no idea what she's talking about. Apparently on the application form are options as far as schooling - K12, public, charter, etc. and homeschooling is not listed. If you check 'other' you are required to get some sort of education approval. Does anyone know what this is about? Can the state limit your benefits if you are homeschooling and don't fall under their requirements for approval? What are there requirements for approval? Mi is a low regulation state - no reporting, so I'm wondering how they can approve anyone as far as homeschooling goes whn the state its self has no requirements...? Anyone been through this? She's afraid to apply to begin with and this is making her very cautious.
