It’s a quiet week as far as homeschool news goes, but here’s what’s on our radar:
- The news catches up to something homeschoolers have been saying for a while: Homeschooling in 2016 looks really different from homeschooling a decade ago.
- A 12-year-old homeschooler becomes the youngest Ivy League student on record. Jeremy Shuler was too young to set up a Common App account and had to submit all this paperwork via snail mail, but he started Cornell as a freshman this fall.
- Who doesn’t love getting a peek inside other homeschoolers’ lives? This photo collection definitely shows what real-life homeschooling looks like.
- Texas is one of the easiest states to homeschool in, as far as legal requirements go, but some Texas families may turn to homeschooling for less-than-happy reasons, thanks to a statewide commitment to reducing special education numbers.
