Melbourne Herald Sun, Melbourne, Australia, 10 April 2007, Home schooling taking off
Ms Wight said 400 families were registered with the network but many more received their education at home.
The State Government has recently changed the laws regarding home schooling, making it necessary for parents to register children.
Before the changes, registration was not compulsory.
Mr Marrett said he believed thousands rather than hundreds of parents were schooling their children at home.
