Spreading across all ethnic groups in South Africa, homeschooling is a growing phenomenon worldwide. More and more concerned parents are choosing homeschooling as an alternative to institutionalised, state-controlled education, which is currently in a crisis, and private education, which in turn can be prohibitively expensive. Because homeschooling is not the educational route that most of our society follows, prospective home-educators often feel that they are setting out into unchartered territory. Homeschooling: The Primary Years is designed to take the mystery and complexities out of this journey. Families, from single-child and single-parent families to large families with children of almost every age group, are discovering how easily and successfully they can educate their children at home. The book provides home-educators with accessible and comprehensive information on legal issues, socialisation, sport, common mistakes to avoid, the benefits of learning at home, available resources, choosing a curriculum, teaching tips, helping children with special needs, and much more. Homeschooling: The Primary Years demonstrates that home education, ideally, is not ‘school-at-home’, and even includes practical advice for parents on earning an income while educating their children at home.
