On the other hand

Just because I didn’t want such negative home-ed news to be atop the blog for long: have this wonderful and inspiring story from the (fabulously named!) Southport Visiter.

All children learn in different ways, they are all individual with their own talents and abilities but the school system treats all children the same. In my opinion, schools are too concerned with exam results and Ofsted reports than they are coaxing an individual child through a learning experience. The more I read about teens self harming, suffering from stress and developing mental issues because of the pressure of school, I was determined that our daughters would not have to face that. Home education was a viable option for us and we took it.

Hooray for them. It’s nice to get away from the angst and just have a reminder of what home-ed is all about.
