UPDATE 5: You are required to give your child an education. You are NOT required to send your child to school. If your child’s school is a sex pervert school, get your child out of that school. At that point, you have more than one (mandatory) option. Homeschooling is just one of them. WARNING: Learn the school laws of the area you live in. While homeschooling is legal across the country, different states have different laws and regulations. Be aware of these laws and regulations to ensure you homeschool your child in a legal way.
