Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) Website Changes
Since the origination of the PA Home Education and Private Tutoring Provisions of the Public School Code, many home-educators have had problems with school districts concerning different areas of the Law. On the PDE’s (Pennsylvania Department of Education) new website, a lot of these issues were addressed and clarifications were made so that there would be no future misunderstandings. Some of the clarifications were acceptable. Some of these clarifications do not agree the PA law.PLEASE do NOT take what the PDE posted on their website as the Law, but refer to the actual language of the Homeschool Law (see the Homeschooling in PA tab/PA Law) for what the Law actually states and your own interpretation of the law.
