Founded in 1984, North Carolinians for Home Education (NCHE) is a private, volunteer organization active at the state level, serving homeschoolers in North Carolina and beyond.
In order to better serve, NCHE divides the state into nine regions. Each region has an assigned number and Regional Director.
Homeschooling is the view that education is best when teaching and learning are integrated into the relationships and activities of the family.
The oldest form of education, homeschooling was legally recognized in NC in 1988.
Article 39 of chapter 115C of the General Statutes defines a Homeschool in NC. The Division of Non-Public Instruction (DNPE) administers the NC law governing homeschooling practice.

Homeschooling the Only Child
I soon began to notice that I was alone, in a sense. I never saw an only child on the cover (or the inside) of Teaching Home, or any other resource I found. I began to observe that homeschoolers are a prolific group—most of my friends had three or more children, and they weren't slowing down.
Yet, despite doubts from without or within, I returned to the comfort that God has ordained all our circumstances and His calling and provision still stands. My son truly enjoyed his own company and had no problems being an only child. We were able to go on more adventures using fewer resources, than anybody I knew, and we greatly enjoyed our years together at home.

Hal’s about It: Peace or Freedom
The government couldn’t depend on controlling a population that had freedom to choose, so the task was to limit their choices first, then condition them to prefer their constrictions rather than seek out their future in a world without guarantees.
Just be wary of the call of “peace and security.” Freedom is a risky thing, but it’s what allows parents to effectively educate kids with special needs, precocious readers, those gifted in mechanics or dance or music, who may be all in the same family!
