Work Full Time and Homeschool?

Email: Can I work full time and still homeschool?

Answer: Many people do this. You don’t have to home”school” from 7am-4pm, M-F, from September until June. The law says you get to choose when, where, and how you go about this awesome homeschool journey.

Consider, if you will, the math:
There are 5,840 waking hours between 15 September of one year and the following 14 September (this is the legal “homeschool calendar” in WA). You have to cover 1,000 hours each year for children ages 8-18. If you spend 2,000 hours working (a full time job, with 2 weeks vacation), that still leaves you 2,840 hours, if you keep homeschooling and working completely separate.
