Nice to see my state of Cali actually surprisingly more progressive than I thought with education.

I attended a charter school as a kid actually so there's hope.

My only concern is that a lot of these "free states" are Bible Belt states. Guess it comes at a cost.

NJ might be freest in that category, but we're pretty unfree in many other categories.

Stay away, here lie dragons.

IL you can pretty much do what you want, but most of our population is basically in the super spread out greater Chicagoland area, i.e. most IL people are badly super conformist status seeking social climbers who take absolutely no advantage of it.

To be honest that kind of sums up California. Most people centered around 2 or 3 big cities (SF, LA and maybe SD) and no one really taking high advantage of those social climbers.

It's good that Connecticut is on here. Otherwise your kid will get shot by some autistic guy.

Jersey's big cities aren't particularly the best.

Newark: People get shot here enough that it's known for a place where people get shot

Jersey City: Weird mix of gentrifying riverside and hispanic "ghetto"

Paterson: Unless Camden is your only other choice, stay out or stick to the outskirts of the city bordering other towns.

Elizabeth: It's like Newark lite with more industrial areas and crap

Trenton: It's the capital. Downtown is decentish but once you step outside of it, it's just shitty poverty laced slums/ghettos. How a capital city can be this fucked up is beyond me.

Atlantic City: It's a dying city/slum/ghetto

Yep. NJ's big cities are pretty terrible. And most folk in the North tend to hit NYC while the South hit Philly. We don't even like our own cities.

So ... a private school? That's all a home school is in Texas. They say it counts as a private school, for the purpose of satisfying the compulsory attendance law. I don't think you can create a private school and just call it a home school and skirt these extra restrictions: https://www.thsc.org/2015/04/private-schools-and-home-schools-the-differences-19576/

So, you have to have an obvious plan going forward. Sounds obvious.
