BBC News, United Kingdom, 13 November 2006, Sharp increase in home education
Alison Preuss, of the Schoolhouse Home Education Association, said she was not surprised by the rise in home educators.
“Schoolhouse tends to get enquiries from parents having problems with their children at school,” she said.
“Bullying is the biggest issue along with special needs, and rural school closures.
“There is a systemic failure in that schools don’t seem to be catering for individual children anymore.”
