Legal & Problem Situations

Home schools in Texas have been determined by the Texas courts to be private schools, and private schools are not regulated by the state of Texas. There are no requirements, such as teacher certification or curriculum approval.

One of the primary benefits of membership with the Texas Home School Coalition Association is free legal assistance. Although home schools are considered private schools and are not regulated by the state of Texas, there are many public officials who are unaware of the law and how it applies to home school parents.

Every year THSC helps home schoolers who are faced with problems caused by those who overstep the law. By writing letters clarifying the law and taking legal action when necessary, THSC protects your right to direct the care, custody, and education of your children.
