Home School Court Report. Providing in-depth, insightful articles
on much of what affects the world of homeschoolers, the
Court Report is a must-read for the serious homeschooler. This
publication is provided free to each HSLDA member.

5. Homeschooling Thru High School: Civics Experience

A great way to provide an exciting supplement to your U.S. government
or civics course is to involve your teens in the political process.
Candidates for elective office have many ways for teens to be
involved, from stuffing envelopes, to putting up campaign signs, to
phone-calling and more. These experiences help your teen to hone life
skills and will give a boost to those college applications and job
resumes.
