Dear Helping Hand,

I am registered as a private school in Louisiana. I homeschool my two daughters. My friend, who has a daughter the same age as my oldest, wants me to homeschool her daughter as well. Is this legal? I have a college degree but it is not in education. I don't mind taking on another but don't want to do anything that will get me into hot water. I know our public school system uses many teachers who are not certified or don't have the correct degree. I also know that that doesn't mean anything. I would appreciate it if you could answer this question for me. Thanks.


Whether or not you can homeschool another person's children depends on the state you live and their regulations. You can find out what is possible in Louisiana by visiting the Louisiana Department of Education Home Study webpage.

The way I read it, you can homeschool other people's children, but you must do it was a joint project. I don't think this keeps you from being the primary teacher.
