DO I HAVE ANY OTHER OPTIONS FOR HOME SCHOOLING ASIDE FROM COMPLYING WITH THE HOME EDUCATION ACT?
ENROLLMENT WITH A PRIVATE SCHOOL - PART I: DEFINING A 617, 607 AND A 623 PRIVATE SCHOOL
All of this controversy eventually led to the passage of the Home Education Act of 1985. With the passage of the law many of the 617, 607 and 623 schools chose to close their doors and comply with the new law. Why? When asked, most former administrators conveyed that they wanted to show support to the legislators who helped to insure parents' rights regarding their children's education. They felt compliance with the newly established law demonstrated their appreciation. Others listed the advantages and disadvantages of enrollment with a 617, 607 or a 623 school, and they simply felt that the advantage of simply registering with their superintendent of schools was a better choice for their family.
Many 617's, 607's and 623's across Florida are operating in a strong and vital way. When I surveyed some administrators about why they chose enrollment with the private school over compliance with the Home Education Act, they felt that the advantages were worth the extra effort.
