What requirements do they have now? Here in PA the state law mandates that you bend over and spread ‘em before your local superintendent of schools. For us, state registration would be an improvement — the state would likely require less documentation, and ignore whatever it did require. But a local school district, that loses between five and eight thousand dollars per pupil homeschooled — they can be spiteful, petty, dictatorial, punitive scoundrels.
In Florida we NOTIFY our local school board that we are homeschooling.. big difference from a REQUEST to home school.. in addition we must have an annual evaluation by ANY certified teach.. of OUR choice not the governments.. this report does NOT go to the government it is for the PARENTS to know where their kids are... in most cases homeschooled kids are AHEAD of their public schooled kids.. but that is none of the governments business.. a simple letter stating that an evaluation was done and Little Jane or Little Johnnie is making progress.. PERIOD.. I would much rather this be done at the LOCAL level than at the State level..
