You also do not need any special educational degree to teach your child from home. The only thing that Utah requires of you is to file a signed and notarized affidavit. The affidavit is basically a note that says your child is being homeschooled and that you take full responsibility for their education. Here are a few important facts you should note about the affidavit:
