Can i deduct education expenses for private K-12 education for my dependents?

No.
Education expenses of any sort, public, private, or home schooled, for grades K-12 are not deductible on your Federal Tax return. Some states have credits/deductions for such, but it varies by state. If your state has such, it will be covered in the state interview when you prepare your state return.
