Homeschooling in the News: Your Weekly Update

A round-up of homeschool-related news from around the world

It’s a quiet week as far as homeschool news goes, but here’s what’s on our radar:

  1. The news catches up to something homeschoolers have been saying for a while: Homeschooling in 2016 looks really different from homeschooling a decade ago.
  2. 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.
  3. Who doesn’t love getting a peek inside other homeschoolers’ lives? This photo collection definitely shows what real-life homeschooling looks like.
  4. 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.
