            Dear Clive,

            Thanks for this information.i haven't had the time to go into it,but reading
            the index,iam glad to find there is information,regarding socialisation of
            the home schooled children,which is one of the first concerns that come up.
            As i have no idea about this whole thing,and as my son is only 2 years,i
            guess that gives me a lot of time to understand,what it means to home
            educate.So i really appreciate your kind help.


            sincerely,
            Sam.

              I wonder if people picked out this interesting fact from the article; that there was no significant difference in the academic performance of home-educated children between those who had a parent who was a qualified teacher and those who didn't?

                Absolutely. I think it goes to tell what a joke it is
                'certifying' teachers. I read somewhere that the
                actual certification course mainly teaches how to
                discipline kids & how to go through the required
                material as quickly & efficientlt as possible, without
                regards to whether the children actually learned
                anyhting or were even paying attention. This, of
                course, is taking into consideration the
                'certification' of teachers in the US mainly. There is
                no training of child psychology, age appropriate
                behaviour or emotional development of children in this
                certification courses.

                Definitely very interesting. I doubt very much that
                parents that send their kids to public & private
                schools realize this or even bother to research it.
