Since 1979, the State of Kentucky has allowed that “parents have the prerogative to choose the education of their child” and has defined homeschools as nonpublic schools. Because Kentucky home schools are considered to be private schools, home schools are subject to the same laws as public schools. Curriculum offered in home schools must be “similar” to that offered in public schools and must include at least reading, writing, spelling, grammar, history, mathematics and civics. Kentucky home school parents are required to keep student attendance records and be open to inspection by the Kentucky Department of Education and the Kentucky Cabinet for Children and Families.
