Oklahoma is the only state with a constitutional provision guaranteeing the right to homeschool. Article 13, Section 4 of the Constitution of Oklahoma guarantees the homeschool exemption by stating that the legislature "shall" provide for the "compulsory attendance at some public or other school, unless other means of education are provided, of all children in the State who are sound in mind and body, between the ages of eight and sixteen, for at least three months each year."

hslda
Home School Legal Defense Association works to make homeschooling possible for every family that wants to do it. 

"In Oklahoma, there are no reporting and testing requirements for homeschool programs. As long as you teach for 180 days, you can legally operate a homeschool program following your own guidelines.

While there are no statutes requiring that certain subjects be taught, some Oklahoma courts have suggested that homeschool education should be equivalent or comparable to a public school education. For this reason, HSLDA strongly recommends that your homeschool curriculum include math, language arts, science, and social studies."

Oklahoma Homeschool Laws

Oklahoma is the only state with a constitutional provision guaranteeing the right to homeschool. Article 13, Section 4 of the Constitution of Oklahoma guarantees the homeschool exemption by stating that the legislature "shall" provide for the "compulsory attendance at some public or other school, unless other means of education are provided, of all children in the State who are sound in mind and body, between the ages of eight and sixteen, for at least three months each year."

hslda
Home School Legal Defense Association works to make homeschooling possible for every family that wants to do it. 

"In Oklahoma, there are no reporting and testing requirements for homeschool programs. As long as you teach for 180 days, you can legally operate a homeschool program following your own guidelines.

While there are no statutes requiring that certain subjects be taught, some Oklahoma courts have suggested that homeschool education should be equivalent or comparable to a public school education. For this reason, HSLDA strongly recommends that your homeschool curriculum include math, language arts, science, and social studies."

Constitutional Home Educators Alliance is an organization comprised of veteran Oklahoma home educating families who understand the importance of constitutionally defined method of educating children “by other means:” creating a distinguishable line between public school, private school, and true or constitutional home education.
