    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 www.hyhen.org/regs.htm 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.

    Thanks,
    Lorraine
