Home Service was founded in 1992 by a group of parents, who were themselves involved in Christian home education in the UK, to provide help and advice for those who were treading the same road or thinking of doing so. Since then the number of families educating their children at home in the UK has grown considerably including many Christians who want their children to be brought up in "the nurture and admonition of the Lord". Many others are considering such a move but are uncertain as to its legality and practicality.
I was recently on Facebook and usually there are times when one question is dominant over all the others and this week it happened to be How to Homeschool for Free. For many parents money is definitely an issue when choosing to homeschool their children. After all you can send your child to public school for free. However, how much is your child's safety or well being worth to you?
