Apparently there is some scripted conspiracy type agenda to make it as difficult as possible to move your kids from private to public school.

We have heard too many stories from other parents and are now experiencing this for ourselves.

So what is "The State" afraid of?

What's happening?

Public schools have to follow rules formulated by the state's Department of Education. The most common problem I've seen is credit transfer. A religion course from private school may not transfer unless there's a category it can fit under in the public school's requirements.

As a note this also happens when students transfer between states, an example is that the original state mandates only 1/2 year of US History while the receiving state requires a full year. The student won't get a History credit for his 1/2 (although it might count as an elective) so he has to take the full year course in his new state.

Hahahahahaha. Ok..ok..hahahahahahaha.
If there was a conspiracy, wouldn't it be the other way around? Wouldn't the schools want to keep from losing students? My administrators are always hoping more students will register to keep numbers up.

Especially kids from private schools who have parents who care enough to pay more for education. Those kids are not the ones who drag schools down.

We did this twice. First time we walked into the office of the public school, asked for a tour, filled out some paperwork, son started the following Monday. Second time we moved to a new town. Called the schools, went up for a tour, filled out the paperwork, kids started at the start of the next school year.

If you want to pay and your kid is on the level of the private school, why is there a problem? [They may want you to have the kid have a tutor to get on grade level work if the sending school is not up to their qualifications, but a public may put a kid back to learn things like state history and get credits not from he sending school.]

What exactly is the issue? Around here your "home" school has to take you if you live in the school's boundaries.
