Hello all. I have a 4th grader and a 7th grader I homeschool now. I would like to unschool them. They seem to resist my schedule. The only worry I have is i live in NY. I have read the laws. I have to send in quarterly reports. The elementary school is not as bad as the middle school. They want me to send in a curriculum! And for this year, my two kids have to take the standardized tests. I worry that when they take those tests if I am unschooling I may get into trouble since it will look like they don't know how to take tests or won't know what is on the test. Or the law will demand i put them back in school. What should I do? I am new to homeschooling, I just started this year. Should they be taking tests on a regular basis? Thanks for any advice. I hope I made sense. I am so new to this! By the way, last year I pulled my daughters out of school because of bullying and health issues.
