    We homeschool in Wisconsin. It is wonderful. I would like to add that, as a homeschooler, we do not use the link above. That link is for the WDPI. Although the WDPI has some info, the Wisconsin Parents Association (WPA) is a better, up-to-date and supportive resource for homeschooling in Wisconsin.

    Homeschooling laws are lax here, yes I agree but unless you keep them enrolled throughout dont look for a public school to accept the credits at least not in Marshfield, WI and dont expect WPA to help either they wont. Homeschooling is the only way to teach your children, I wish we would have done it from the beginning, learn first than decide what is best for your situation. With that said, we own land in Ashland County (way north) few regulations, land is beautiful and the North Central Trail is up there. Lots of hunting and fishing opportunities too.
