Although Arkansas does not issue accredited diplomas to homeschooled students, I took a look at what is required to graduate from an Arkansas public school in the year 2010. Noticeably missing from the required 22 credits was a foreign language! Instead of requiring 6 career credits perhaps they should require a language. Just about every college I can think of wants to see at least two years of the same foreign language. Good thing homeschoolers have more options and flexibility than the state of Arkansas. This is one reason why we homeschool.
