The British home education scene…
I found this little piece, by a home educating parent in Wales, revealing and also profoundly depressing;
Let’s check out those possible reasons for home educating! There’s bullying, special needs, religion, illness and philosophical considerations. Hmmm, what’s missing from this list of motives to home educate? Can anybody tell me? Oh yes, that’s right; to give your child a good education does not seem to be here.
This article says tells us something about home education in this country. It is hard to imagine a piece like this being written by an American home educator which left out education as a motive for home education.
