Do I need legal representation to homeschool in Massachusetts?

Most Massachusetts homeschoolers have successfully homeschooled without encountering legal problems. If obstacles do arise, informing yourself fully and working through obstacles is an empowering experience. Many have found that advocating for one's own family is one of the most valuable parts of homeschooling.
