A View of Future Education?
Home schooling is carried out by parents in their own home, with curricula supplied by parents, with very little or no input from educational authorities. Research from Britain and the USA has found that the majority of parents do so for One of four interrelated reasons (a) religious values, or beliefs which cannot be taught in an existing local school, (b) conflict with how children should be taught or allowed to learn, (c) disagreement with the school on some problem with a child(ren), (c) other worries about the school environment such as bullying or other violence. Home schooling is carried out in several western countries and in Australia. The use of the new information and communication technologies enable greater access to resources within the own home. The paper discusses whether home schooling may enable the delivery of education to all in a more equitable manner.
