EKT Posted February 28, 2018 Share Posted February 28, 2018 (edited) So, my husband and I are discussing a possible new job for him that would relocate us to Syracuse, New York. (It is very theoretical at this point, but I want to get a handle on what a move could mean for our homeschooling before we pursue the idea any further.) We currently live in a medium-regulation state and I really enjoy the freedom I have here. (The area I'm in is so homeschool-friendly and it is tough to even consider leaving!) I've heard New York and Pennsylvania are terrible for homeschooling (that is, high regulation). Is this true? How bad is it? Can anyone give me the quick-and-dirty version of the homeschool requirements in New York? (Some particulars I'd love to know: Is testing of any kind required? Is it one of those states where you have to call your household a private school and give it a name? What are evaluations like and what are you required to show the state? How often are evaluations? Anything else that is specific to New York that I should know?) Bonus if you live in/near Syracuse: Is there a good homeschool vibe there? Are there a lot of homeschoolers and extracurriculars to choose from? Would love to hear about your experience! Thank you in advance (so much!) to anyone who can fill me in before we put too much stock in considering the job possibilities.
