Virtual schools and homeschooling in Illinois have long been separated as a precaution against the public confusing the two. It isn’t easy to keep them delineated like that. People want to blur the edges and that seems to be what’s going on in a new bill in the Illinois House now. Details here. Although I think the wording might be specifically relating to the virtual schooling, that they don’t want parents teaching the topics or doing the work for the kids so they phrase it a certain way. Still, it is easy to see how that could be construed towards homeschoolers in the future if it sets a precedent. Thanks Colette for the heads-up on this one!
