This is a great place to get started (especially if you live in NC)–the very helpful website, NCHE, North Carolinians for Home Education. It will guide you to DNPE, where you can register to be a true “homeschooler!” And enjoy all the freedom to educate in ways that make sense for your children.
Here’s a page that describes 5 common styles of home education.
