Questions about homeschooling?

Can I homeschool myself?

How does people who are homeschooled get certified?

Does the parents correct tests?

Where do the parents get the annual curriculum they are going to teach?

As an adult, yes. You're not legally required to be in school.

It depends on the jurisdiction. In the U.S., different states have different requirements for demonstrating that a child is actually being educated (though actual, formal teacher certification is not usually among them). Different provinces in Canada also have different requirements.

If the parent gives tests and chooses to correct them, yes. Some people don't give tests and choose to use other forms of assessments (projects, etc.).

Some people don't follow a set curriculum at all. Other people use formal curricula sold or offered as packages. Some curricula are geared towards people of particular faith backgrounds, while others are more general. There are many sources of curricula, which you can find online or from homeschool/education supply companies.
