Want to Homeschool for FREE? Sure ya do! Whether you're having problems with the public school (like we are), or have always dreamed of homeschooling, this amazing list of resources will help you get on the right track.

{Top 100 Homeschooling Resource Websites}

Some of the links lead to religious sites. I am not affiliated with any of these religions, nor do I endorse what they teach. However, when it comes to Homeschooling, many of the resources you find will be religious. You can change them to suit your family's individual needs and desires. Luckily, there are more secular resources popping up each and every day.
