HF 214 A bill to eliminate Independent Private Instruction On February 11th, six Iowa legislators sponsored a bill in the Iowa House to eliminate Independent Private Instruction (IPI), the homeschooling option that was enacted two years ago, through a bill championed by Network of Iowa Christian Home Educators. The intent of HF 214 is to completely remove every instance of IPI in the Iowa Code, wiping away the freedoms gained in the bi-partisan effort to pass the legislation in 2013. This bill did not make its way out of the House committee process by the March 6 funnel date, so it will not be considered by the Iowa House this session.
