Final Report, Home Schooling in NSW - NSW Parliament

Final Report, Home Schooling in NSW - NSW Parliament | Home Schooling | Scoop.it
05/12/2014: Final Report, Home schooling, prepared by the Home schooling Committee
Terry Harding's insight:

The NSW Parliamentary Report on Home Schooling has been released. This is only a report and the Minister does not have to enact any of the 24 recommendations.

 

As I said at the Parliamentary hearings, if the inquiry into home schooling does not satisfy both the home schoolers and BOSTES, the inquiry will be a failure. Let's hope that home schooling registration in NSW will be less onerous and that it will be more understanding of home schooling.
