In the name of Allah, Most Beneficent, Most Merciful
Over the past two decades home education has become an accepted and valid educational choice for many families here in Australia and the number of children being educated at home has increased steadily
Parents who choose to educate their children at home come from a wide variety of social and educational backgrounds. Their reasons are also many and varied, from those who decide before their children are born, to those who would never have considered the option had not their children experienced insurmountable problems in school.
Home education is not all smooth sailing, and has its share of frustrations and difficulties. There is no perfect solution or single best practice. In fact one of the main attractions of home education is that parents are able to work out with their children the kind of learning that suits them best. This requires serious commitment.
For those who withdraw their children from school, the thought of how to go about educating a child at home can be quite daunting. However, as parents gradually gain in confidence, the great majority find the experience worthwhile and enriching not least because they are actively involved in their children’s education and have the privilege of watching their progress first hand. Parents also learn a great deal more about education. Education at home leads many parents to view learning and child rearing in a very different light.
