What Subjects do I have to teach?
In Florida, there is no specific curriculum, or subjects, that Florida Homeschoolers have to follow. If a parent wishes to "unschool" (teach the student using life experiences and/or following the child's interests and needs rather than using textbooks), that is fine. If a parent wants to focus on certain subjects (such as teaching a child the basics of reading), that's fine. If a parent wishes to use materials garnered from the internet, or things the parent makes up, or use hands-on materials rather than books, that is fine, too. Remember though, if you choose to use a Private or Umbrella school, the rules may be different.
