~I have to put this one in here for the wealth of resources they have available, but they do appear rather anti-homeschool on many fronts. Worth the time if you can find your way around.

~Here the law is broken down bit by bit; clear and concise.

That should about cover it and may even be a bit redundant. Hopefully all of your questions regarding homeschooling in Kentucky have been answered and I will post any changes in the law if they come about as soon as I am aware of them.
