DH and I were talking this evening about homeschooling. We currently are in Georgia, but are considering a move back up to New England. One of the huge issues for us is ease of homeschooling. We are considering moving to my hometown or a town close by. The rules in that state are that homeschooling is controlled by the local town you reside in. There are general state laws that have to be followed, but the town you live in has its own set of criteria you have to follow in order to be approved. Usually the criteria stretches beyond the law and folks usually don't have to submit what is being asked of them. But, I want to know why is one town harder than the other? Why would one state be easier than another? It's not an issue of not getting their taxes. So, why would a specific school department even care if you homeschool or not? Why would they give you a hard time by requiring a whole bunch of bullshit? I just don't get it. Anyone have experience with this? It doesn't sound like folks in that state want to or maybe can go into specifics. So, that's why I am here wondering if someone has a general answer to my general question. Any takers?
I hope this post makes sense.
