Maine parents may choose to educate their children at home. Parents take full responsibility for the child while the child is being homeschooled—they legally direct the child's education by choosing the curriculum, facilitating the process and determining academic needs. Homeschooling is funded exclusively by the parent. In Maine, there have been upwards of 5,000 students registered with their local superintendent of schools and the Maine Department of Education for homeschooling.
