Lots of research, facts and figures about education at home in the UK. There are useful references, too, but the whole book is a bit dry: one to be dipped into rather than read straight through. Still, it's encouraging to see what can be learned by children and teenagers at home even when no teaching takes place. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0826452051, Paperback)

With increasing numbers of parents choosing to educate their children at home, an opportunity exists to explore education outside the school environment. Parents often discover that classroom approaches to teaching and learning do not easily translate into the home. As a result, some radically adjust their approach to educating their children, in some instances virtually abandoning any structured teaching or learning. Focusing on informal learning, this text examines in depth how children can acquire an education simply through everyday experiences. The text sets out to challenge fundamental assumptions about the nature of teaching and learning. Research has been drawn from a wide cross-section of parents from 100 home-educating families.
