This is the question asked by Kevin Rooney of Times Online. Â His article doesn’t discuss home education as such but, in a round about way, it touches onÂ some of the reasons people choose to home educate their children.
It paints a child’s world where everything, including home life, revolves around formal education in a primary school system where testing has become theÂ raison d’etre.Â Â The article conveysÂ a situation where the use of free time, not just by the child but alsoÂ by theÂ family, is dictated by the primary school.
Is thisÂ a feeling Oxford Home Schooling students had when they were in primary school? Â Is this one of the reasons why you chose home education?
