While public school charter schools provide parents with another choice, we emphasize that they are still public schools in every sense of the word. HSLDA also strongly cautions homeschoolers against enrolling in virtual charter schools. Virtual charter schools are actually controlled by the public school system. Families who choose to participate in charter schools are participating in public schools, and are subject to increased government regulation over the inner workings of their homes, including course content and curriculum choices.
More information about the differences between homeschools and charter schools can be found in HSLDA's Issues Library.
