The Freedom Index Rating is a system that has been developed by a team of professionals to best reflect the status of homeschooling in each nation that is monitored by the Global Alliance of National Christian Homeschool Leaders. This rating system takes into consideration both government action and civil society reaction to homeschooling based upon expert analysis and reports from leaders on the ground.

There are currently three levels of the Freedom Index Rating, including:

1. Favorable (Green). A “Favorable” rating indicates that homeschooling in the reported nation has conditions that may lead (or have led) to an increase in freedom; this nation most likely has measures that maintain limited or no restrictions on one’s right to educate at home; this nation may have legislation that creates a pro-homeschool environment.

2. Not Favorable (Yellow). A “Not Favorable” rating indicates that homeschooling in the reported nation has conditions that may lead (or have led) to a decrease in freedom; this nation most likely has measures that maintain burdensome or undue restrictions on one’s right to educate at home; this nation may lack relevant legislation, thus creating a legal void regarding homeschooling.

3. Oppressive (Red). An “Oppressive” rating indicates that homeschooling in the reported nation has conditions that may lead (or have led) to a complete loss of freedom; this nation most likely has measures that maintain maximum restrictions and/or penalties on one’s right to educate at home; this nation may have legislation that creates an anti-homeschool environment.
