    Filed at 5:30 pm under by dcobranchi

    I don’t often post articles about home education in the UK, but the Education Otherwise folks ought to be keeping their eyes open for this:

    Parents who home school their children could face more monitoring from their local council under proposals out.

    Ministers have launched a review of the home education system, which allows children to be taught outside of school.

    The review will investigate current systems for supporting and monitoring home education, as well as looking at how concerns about the safety, welfare and education of a child are dealt with.
