Home education is often regarded as expensive, because one of the parents often has to stop working outside the house.

If however the costs of both parents working outside the house are taken into account, home education is not necessarily that costly. This includes tax, school fees, school clothes, after school care, transport to schools, pocket money etc. If these costs are taken into account, parents often spend more on keeping a child in school than they generate with a second income.

If families budget carefully, they will find that it is not impossible to survive with one income. For single income families, home education is generally cheaper than school education. There are many ways with which the costs of home education can be contained:

  • The same curriculum can be used for multiple children
  • Parents can compile their own curriculum
  • Make use of 2nd hand curriculum material and free resources
  • Join support groups that can negotiate discounts for field trips.
  • Make use of the public library

It is however not always true that families where both parents work cannot homeschool their children. Since home education needs much less time than school education, home education can be combined with part time employment. If both parents work shifts, the time between shifts can be use for home education. Parent that work from home or have their own business can easily combine home education and business. To involve the children in the business can also be a learning experience for the children. Click here for an article on homeschooling with two working parents.

Parents that stay at home to educate their children can do a variety of things to generate an additional income. Click here for ideas on what parents can do to make money from home.

It is more difficult for single parent families to homeschool their children, but not impossible. Single parents that work from home can combine work and home education. Parents that work outside the home will have to do homeschooling office hours. Some single parents can make use of tutors.
