Subject: [Discuss-sudbury-model] New York state sudbury schools

I will be moving to Ithaca NY in the fall this year and I hope to either
unschool or preferably start a sudbury valley type school. However, I
just read the reporting and testing requirements for new york state at and I'm wondering how either would be possible
given the information that the state wants. They seem to require a by
subject by hour curriculum.
Is anyone on this list affiliated with a new york state sudval school or
another state with equally ridiculus reporting and testing requirements?
I know there is at least one school in New York listed at the sudval
site. I think there is a fairly new school in Albany. What I'm
wondering is how it is possible to fulfill such requirements when the
students are in charge of their own education. How can they be free to
learn what they want to when there are testing (every other year) and
repoting requiremnts BY SUBJECT! UGH!! Who is responsible for the
reporting, the school or the parents? Do students at the NY schools
have to be tested every couple of years? Is there a way around this or
should I move to another state? (just kidding - i think)
Any info would be appreciated.
