Oak Brook Borders requires Homeschool Certification and Licenses

Educator Appreciation Week runs through Oct. 7 at Oak Brook Borders, 1500 16th St. Borders will honor current and retired teachers, librarians, licensed homeschoolers, school administrators and daycare facilitators with 30 percent off the list price of nearly everything in stores, including books, music, movies, toys and games, gifts and stationery and Seattle’s Best Coffee cafe products. Educators will need to present proof of educator status, which can be a pay stub or an identification card with a current date. Homeschoolers must present their homeschool certification.

Any homeschooler can create a nice looking educator ID card.

The license and certification might be a bit of a problem per this Borders’ behest. Certainly not a bad problem.  Illinois homeschoolers don’t need, or have licenses/certification.

Surely other Borders stores aren’t requiring this?  The tone seems antagonistic, in singling out homeschoolers who “must present….”.
