Being called a “case” is never attractive.
- head case
- nut case
- having a ‘case of the hips’
- investigate a case
- criminal case
- social worker’s case
UK home-school cases soar, 26 September 2007, Channel 4 News, London, UK
There is no reliable data on how many of these children there are – estimates say up to 50,000 – but the exclusive data obtained by Channel 4 News Online shows it’s rising.
This article makes homeschooling sound like an alien invasion movie.
In some areas it’s far higher – Lancashire for example has seen an 829 per cent increase in home schooling since 2002.
Well, definitely avoid Lancashire. It might be catching.
“It is also not clear whether rises are due to better reporting by local authorities, rather than a genuine increase in home education. We should therefore be extremely wary of drawing rash conclusions on what is by no means conclusive data.”
Sounds like a homicide rate.
Unpleasant little piece.
