We think that we've finally found the place where we want to settle down and raise our family. There is just a beautiful part of Massachusetts that my husband and I both fell in love with. Other then DH finding a job in the area, we are pretty much set to move up there before the year is out. We are going looking for houses this weekend and hoping that his current company will let him work from home. The only problem is that I am having trouble finding info on the states laws on a number of things. I would really like info on homeschooling in that area. I have heard that they are pretty strict. We are really more the unschooling type and I'm just not sure how much we will have to bend to please the state. Does anyone have any info or know of any resources that I can check out? Is anyone out there unschooling or just homeschooling in general in this area?

Thanks in advance for any help that you can provide.

We live just north of Boston and love it. I would suggest that you check out the Massachusetts Home Learning Association at www.mhla.org for official information. Best of luck with your home search and potential move. You didn't say where you are looking, but let me know if you have any questions.

Hey wow! I envy you so! This may not be quite the cup-of-tea you are looking for, but Sudbury Vally School is near Boston, (Framingham), and although you are home schooling, this is worth a look at.

Hope it all works out for you.
