    Here’s a tiny update on the “home ed” hooker. Really no new news. But this brief section caught my eye:

    The school is not accredited, meaning the students cannot obtain a recognizable high school diploma if they graduate from there.

    “They would have to get a GED (General Equivalency Diploma) if they completed the program and wanted to go on to college,” said Rob Houchin, Tazewell County’s regional superintendent of schools, referring to New Hope Christian Academy as a “glorified home school.”

    You can’t go to college in IL unless you’ve graduated from an accredited school? That can’t be right. And the GED, of course, is not the “General Equivalency Diploma” but the General Education Development test. Two major errors in a single sentence– a new world’s record!
