ROANOKE, Va. (WDBJ) - Heading back to school can be tough and exciting, and homeschooling can present its own set of challenges and expectations.

As part of our Back-to-School coverage on the WDJB7+ Digital News Desk, we spent Wednesday afternoon talking about tips for parents and students heading into a year of homeschooling.

Last year, the Virginia Department of Education logged 20,000 more homeschool students for the 2020-2021 school year than the year before.

That brought last year’s number of homeschooled students in the Commonwealth up to more than 59,000 students.

We spoke with Karen Shumway of The Organization of Virginia Homeschoolers to share her tips to help you have a successful year.
