to Relaxed Homeschooling and Unschooling in Colorado — Made Simple! RMEC is the original and only statewide unschooling site in Colorado. For more about me, visit Meet Cindy.

Homeschooling, home schooling, home education, unschooling: so many names, but they all mean the same thing. Are you confused about where to start? What’s legal and what’s not? Where to find curriculum? How to homeschool more than one child? How to do this if you work? If other people can homeschool your child for you? How you determine if they’re really learning? What about socialization? Will they be accepted into college? How to explain learning at home to your in-laws, parents and friends? I answer all these questions, guide you, provide concrete academic sources and so much more. RMEC is not a support group, or an organization, it’s just one veteran mom, an information hub for Colorado home learners. Additionally, everybody’s welcome here. No politics, no religious agenda, no lifestyle judgements, no selling you pricey curriculum. Everyone everywhere should have access to this unbiased information. That’s why this website exists and why I do what I do. C’mon in, stay awhile, put your feet up and read to your heart’s content.

School Is Out Forever for Unschoolers
School’s never out for 14-year-old Zoe Bentley. Nor is it ever in.

Colorado Homeschool Law in a Nutshell was such a relief to read through and finally understand what was going on in just a few minutes. Before reading I was pretty confused, not at the overall idea, but at some of the important details. After reading I paid Cindy for a few minutes of her time as well; the money spent on the e-book and time I can honestly say is some of the best money I’ve ever spent. I’m so happy & relaxed about home-school now, the book was amazing and she made perfect recommendations. We only found it a few days ago and we’re 100% taken care of now, thank you Cindy!
