We just moved to Mercer, PA. I need to find an evaluater who is unschooling friendly. Does anyone out there know of one in my area? If so, a contact number? Also, I am curious about testing out of the standardized testing. I can not say that I disagree with it due to religious beliefs. However, I do disagree with it. Is there an alternative to this testing? What have yall done?
you are very welcome! :o)
here is an Unschooling evaluator~Lisa Hays (E, S)"First and foremost, I am a mom to 9 little ones. I have been lovingly home educating for 9 years. I have been through it all as a school at homer, Cyber Schooler, eclectic and now an unschooler by heart. I am a certified teacher for K-8. I have worked with children of all ages, gender and nationalities for years and children are my passion! I truly believe that children and people grow daily, it is part of our nature. Spring 2010 is my fourth year evaluating. I am also happy to do consulting and support of burnt out moms (I have been there!). I am opposed to over-compliance and I am happy to help you learn the laws. I will travel for groups, do distance or in-person evaluations. I would be happy to work out whatever system will make your child most comfortable with the process."

It's my daughter who is 9 :-) We didn't do the standardized testing this year, I didn't give the sd a grade, I just said she was 8. If they press me, I'll just tell them she wasn't in 3rd, 5th or 8th grades. If we're still in this sd next year, we'll probably have to submit one. I know some test require more reading than others, I think there are some where someone reads you the questions. I had an unschooling friend offer to "administer" the test to her, so, that's probably what we'll do. To find unschooling friendly evaluators, ask around. There may be some people in your area on pa-unschoolers and there is a local group of relaxed homeschoolers that I know who discuss evaluators and so I remembered the ones who had a better understanding of unschooling and would evaluate as such. Yes, you choose your evaluator. For the picnic, a mom from a homeschool list offered up her home and had two evaluators there. As you came you signed in and they took you in order you got there. While you waited, you could chat and eat and the kids played. It was a very relaxed atmosphere. At some point all of us were brand new to it all, we asked questions and read a lot. Don't worry, you'll catch on.
