An Illinois homeschool graduate was finishing up his bachelor’s degree when he decided that his next step would be to enter a program at the Institute of Production and Recording (IPR) in Minneapolis, MN.

But IPR told the young man they wanted him to supply proof that the state “approved” his homeschool program and prove that he complied with state graduation requirements.

The family contacted HSLDA for help. HSLDA Senior Counsel Scott A. Woodruff wrote to IPR. He explained that under Illinois law, homeschools are not required to be “approved,” and homeschool graduates are not required to follow public school graduation requirements.

IPR promptly admitted the young man.
