Ok, the true title for it is ‘home-schooling on the rise’ – but I’ve never liked the term ‘home-schooling’ :0)
Anyway, an interesting snippet from C4 News, here.
Most interesting to me are the numbers of home-educated children for the local area that I live in. The local authority doesn’t give out Education Otherwise information and there are very few HE-ing members of EO here. I’ve also had a sneaky peak at the HEAS members list and again, there are very few local members on there – so where are all the home-educated children (just over 180 known to the LA, without even starting on the ‘unknowns’)? I was already roughly aware of numbers due to a fairly recent interview I did for a local newspaper and think that it is a very large number for the area.
