If your husband cannot read and write, then he can't homeschool. You are doing your child a disservice here in more ways that one,

If you do not have clothes to wear for school, talk to the local charities and churches for some assistance. You could even discuss it with your school (although I don't know what schools are like where you live - where I live, many public schools have wellbeing budgets where they can assist with supplying food, clothes, etc to families who are struggling financially). Please don't us tehis as a reason not to put your child into schooling.
