A fun, rousing and thought provoking episode!  I chat with two moms from the UK, Bo, a pioneer home educator, and Zoe, a covid-induced newbie about the climate of home education in the UK and their own experiences.   But our conversations leads so many good places.  What is education…how do we deal with judgement, the effect that homeschooling has on women, and some political frustrations.  We discuss wet nurses and teens in the fourteenth century.  

Zoe's  little blogette:

For those interested in American home school curricula in the UK (e.g. IEW or Life of Fred), do support Conquest Books in Wales. Run by a lovely and kind Christian fellow. They are ace: https://www.conquestbooks.co.uk/

Section 7 of the Education Act of 1996 that Bo referred to:

Duty of parents to secure education of children of compulsory school age.

The parent of every child of compulsory school age shall cause him to receive efficient full-time education suitable—

(a)to his age, ability and aptitude, and

(b)to any special educational needs he may have,

either by regular attendance at school or otherwise.

https://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/1996/56/section/7

One organisation that supports Home Ed families or those interested in starting Home Ed is called Education Otherwise and would be well worth joining. They have all the info to help families deregister etc and can also provide support if there are difficulties with local councils. https://www.educationotherwise.org/
