WISCONSIN HOMESCHOOLING LAWS
A BRIEF HISTORY

During the early 1980's, Wisconsin homeschoolers faced significant adversity from the Department of Public Education and the community-at-large had little or no information about homeschooling.

Those who were currently home educating were scattered throughout the community with few contacts with other homeschooling families.

Through the diligence of the Wisconsin Parents' Association, lobbyist Marv Munyon and homeschooling families throughout Wisconsin, the home schooling community gained a victory on May 10, 1984, with the passage of the 1983 Wisconsin Legislative Act 512. This Act continues to be the current homeschooling law that we enjoy today.
