to Rocky Mountain Education Connection (RMEC for short). This is the place to find the most in-depth and comprehensive FAQ on the legalities of Colorado’s home school law, and what your options are, explained in plain English by a homeschooler with 22 years’ experience (that would be me): The Colorado Homeschool Law in a Nutshell.
The Rookie Workshop for New Homeschoolers (coming soon) is my straightforward, easy to understand and often amusing how-to guide for new homeschooling parents.
Unschooling. RMEC is also Colorado’s only statewide unschooling site. Unschooling means letting your child learn naturally, without setting up “a classroom at home” or buying pricey curricula. You can unschool on $100 a year or less. And yes, they can still get into college. Both of mine did, at ages 14 and 16. My youngest graduates this year with a B.S. in Applied Mathematics, Magna Cum Laude. This is the same child who couldn’t read until age 10, refused to open a textbook, and wouldn’t learn Math until age 16.

Please know that I only link to sites, articles and products that I personally know or have checked out thoroughly. I don’t link to “junk sites” or those Johnny-Come-Lately Mega-Corps who could care less about homeschooling … but have discovered we’re “a market” and only want to sell us something. If you have a negative experience, let me know and I’ll check it out. — Cindy
