Extra material requested

Nancy Thompson, by email

ImageIn response to Leslie Safran’s article ‘The death of home education’ (PN 2602–2603) I am curious to know who Leslie Safran is referring to in her article: ‘People are not taking the time to find out different ways for themselves’, and ‘most people in the last two or three years have extra materials to home educate’.

Is there any evidence/statistics to back up Leslie’s claims?

I’d like to know more. No one I know who currently home educates follows any kind of syllabus.

The only people I’m aware of who do have ‘extra materials’ to home educate tend to be religious.

Is this the demographic Leslie is referring to I wonder?
