    Even if all is true, it doesn't justify the "war on drugs". In this "report" it stated that Muslims put the law of Allah before the laws of man... DUH!!! So I put "God's law" and even "common sense" before the "laws of men". Laws of men are nothing but a bunch of words on paper written to empower the movers and the shakers and they have nothing to do with "good". In fact they are mostly BAD! Why would any sane person put the "laws of men" anywhere but at the bottom of the logical ladder on things to obey??

    Even if Gov. Sununu isn't reelected, we get to keep Frank Edelblut, probably the most pro-liberty Commissioner of Education in the nation, for another 2 and 1/2 years so there will be 2 gubernatorial elections before another Commissioner of Education may be appointed ;) When Edelblut was a state rep., the libertarian New Hampshire Liberty Alliance gave him a 91% score. That's a higher score than the official Libertarian Party legislators receive in NH. When he ran for governor, he was the first candidate even endorsed by the NHLA for governor. Commissioner Edelblut recently spoke at the Coalition of New Hampshire Taxpayers Annual Picnic and was the keynote speaker at the NHLA's annual Liberty Dinner. Yes, though, I hope and expect Sununu to be reelected :)

    Right, any of those tests are options for this requirement: - Parents have to do something in the form on an assessment every year. This could include having a private school teacher look at the portfolio, a standardized achievement test, or any other method acceptable to both the parents and participating agency (a private school the parents work with for paperwork purposes). $50 a year in compliance costs isn't bad considering a NH parent can get $500 a year to cover the homeschool costs, including this cost. Of course, having a teacher review a portfolio is another option and may be done at no cost. Even if a parent chooses to not get the free homeschooling scholarship, no one would argue that $50 and 90 minutes a year in regulation to homschool a child is a difficult undertaking for a homeschooled parent. The truth is, I've never heard of a homeschooled family anywhere that didn't already keep some type of portfolio. So it would be nice to get rid of that, and if you move to NH as part of the Free State Project, and work towards that goal, I'll help you. Let's me know :) We can do this together ;)

    - There is a one-time notification to the school district or a private school in which the child lives. - Parents have to keep a portfolio on what a child did each year, for two year running. The government doesn't look at the portfolio. - Parents have to do something in the form on an assessment every year. This could include having a private school teacher look at the portfolio, a standardized achievement test, or any other method acceptable to both the parents and participating agency (a private school the parents work with for paperwork purposes). So, if you are asking does NH require both a one time notification and a professional to look at a portfolio for a few minutes (or whatever else the parent and an organization the parent partners with for paperwork purposes decide to do), than yes. 1 to 2 hours per year of state compliance is required in NH if a parent decides to follow the laws of the state. Of course, NH has been on the news for the large unschooling community here. You may have seen it on the Oprah Winfrey Show, Dr. Phil, CNN, Nightline, Wife Swap, or Fox News. Millions of people around the nation are aware of the NH unschooling that has seen zero people arrested for ignoring federal and state law as far as I'm aware. People complain that we are too free, that our unschooling is going too far, yet we persist. We maintain the freedoms that we've won, we continue to increase education related freedoms, and we ignore bad laws.

    I bumped this to remind William Tell that even posters on RPFs were somewhat complaining about how free New Hampshire is with education freedom. I've known multiple families that have or do unschool in NH and have never heard of any of them being prosecuted for violating state or federal law. I am not worried about the lawless nature of education in the NH unschooling community. Most of these children will end up doing much better than their government school peers. Despite over 10,000,000+ people learning on TV that unschooling movement leader Dayna Martin followed no education laws, she managed to unschool her kids in New Hampshire without major concern. She leads a 17,550 members my Radical Unschooling group and has actually graduated kids. http://daynamartin.com/

    While homeschool is just one part of education freedom, you bring up a good point that NSLDA should update their map. Some in the NH homeschooling community don't like that organization because it is a bit statist, like how the NRA is on guns and the ACLU is on civil liberties. Because of that, I'm not really concerned to try to correct NSLDA. The map also doesn't mention that there is a business tax credit scholarship program that covers homeschooling expenses in NH. The program used to only be open to a limited number of homeschoolers, but the percentage of homeschoolers that qualify was greatly expanded, so long as the private scholarship program is able to raise the needed funds. When the program started, NH was the only state where homeschooling expenses were covered with what would otherwise be tax dollars via a program. NH had no problem expanding the great scholarship program, so maybe that also means other states are copying our freedom in this area? I can only hope so, because it is for the children.

    While NH moved from average to above average over the last few years when it came to education freedom, NH legislators realize that was difficult to accomplish those achievements because before Governor Sununu, the last 12 years were under Democratic governors. Given 4 years, Gov. Sununu will be able to replace everyone on the Board of Education, but those appointments only last for 4 years. So legislators wrote SB 44 to make it clean that the executive branch would understand the limits to the role it plays in education, just in case another Democrat becomes the governor of NH at some point in the future. To those ends, SB 44 - prohibits the department of education and the state board of education from requiring the implementation of the common core standards in any school or school district in this state and - prohibits the state board of education from amending any existing academic standards or approving any new academic standards without prior review and recommendation of the legislative oversight committee States elect governors independent of the legislature as notoriously Democratic leaning states and notoriously Republican leaning states frequently elected governors from the other major party. You can never be too careful when it comes to protecting the children ;) Below is from a previous article about this bills after they passed the NH Senate.

    Governor Sununu signed SB 43. The bill provides that no student shall be required to volunteer or submit to a non-academic survey or questionnaire without written consent of a parent or legal guardian. Opt-in vs. out-out is a good deal in respecting the right of a parent to control a child's education. There is an exception for adults still in school and emancipated minors. The bill http://www.gencourt.state.nh.us/bill_status/billText.aspx?id=211&txtFormat=html&sy=2017 Anti-education advocates and Democrats don't like the bill because they thing that the state owns children. The previous governor vetoed a similar bill. Now we have a good person in the corner office :)

    Yes, NH is freeish compared to other more sheepish states ;) PA and likely even MA are freer than several Southern states, certainly freer than WV and KY. But maybe freer than MS, depending on who you ask ;) Anyway, I wasn't saying that all of the Northeastern states are free at all, a lot of them totally suck, suck, suck. It is just that the freest states aren't in the Southeast, well, maybe TN and FL but again that depends who you ask ;) Many of the Southern states were controlled by Democrats until recently, so they still have year and years of work to clean up after decades and decades of Democratic control. Here is what most people use (or should use) to compare freedom between the states. https://www.freedominthe50states.org/ Sorry for your loss of Atlanta. It does have some really cool new crosswalks though ;) :)
