Another school year is about to begin and homeschooling parents are gathering together their books and curriculum and prepping for another year of homeschooling. This year New Jersey gets the award for the worst place to educate your kids. The old homeschooling page was taken down and a new page erected that attempts to frighten people away from educating their kids at home, using two outdated court cases from the 1960s in which parents were persecuted for homeschooling their kids. New Jersey has long been one of the lowest performers when it comes to public education. New Jersey also has a higher rate of crime than most states with Newark being one of the most dangerous cities to live in the United States. The good news is that New Jersey is a small state. You can move out of the state and live within two hours of your old neighborhood. The best advice? Move.
