The main reason I decided NOT to register is that I don't think it's any buisiness of the state's that I am homeschooling. One day down the road they may decide to be more "pro-active" when it comes to homeschoolers or maybe thay will decide to levy a tax on homeschoolers, really who knows with the government. The point is I would not want to make it easy to be contacted by them in the event they decide what measures they may take. The less control they have the better. Frankly, I really don't want them in my private buisiness. This is one reason why I decided to homeschool in the first place.
Now don't get me wrong, I don't homeschool in secret. I tell anyone who wants to know what we're doing. I want to make sure that people also know that I have nothing to hide. I don't want to come across as "an end of the worlder" or anything. It's just that I am a firm believer that the less the gov't knows about our private home life the better off we are.
That being said, of course, I hope you understand this philosophy has nothing to do with taking children out of abusive homes or making sure a child is safe where they are living. I am only saying that I believe that the gov't should not have a voice in how parents choose to school their children.
