In Florida it’s very inexpensive (the free books are only for the public school kids, homeschoolers pay their own books...probably worth challenging at some point because we pay the same school taxes through our property taxes as any public school kid’s parents.)
Dual credit is free tuition, then there’s a scholarship for full tuition to a state college if you score high enough on SATs (the lottery funds that.) Our kid’s finishing up his Master’s and we’ve never paid any tuition...during grad school his tuition’s been paid because he’s a GA.
Our son’s 21, but my sister homeschooled her kids and they’re in their 30’s now. Back in those days you had to fight for everything you wanted to do. Taking them out of school and homeschooling was being “radical.” It’s so much more accepted now.
