But the thing is in Tennessee it isn't.  What you are describing is called 
"homebound education",.  That term and the term "homeschool" has a specific 
legal defintion in Tennessee.  By legislated defintion, if it is under the 
guidance of the schools system (Local Eductional Authority, [LEA]) it is specifically 
not 'homeschool'.
