Product description

Product Description

In this second ground breaking series research on the face of home education moves up a gear to consider questions that have previously gone unanswered.
The golden question of how many home educators there might currently be has always been a vexed issue, this book offers an innovative look at numbers research using evidence from enquiries to LEAs using the Freedom of Information Act.
Moving into new territory, this book examines the support networks, both voluntary and statutory, and how they serve or fail the needs of home educators, focussing particularly on the continuing problems that home educators routinely encounter in dealing with statutory authorities.
Finally a group continually overlooked in research are given detailed attention. Home educators with special needs children face distinctive challenges in providing a suitable education, challenges which can be significantly eased or added to by both the home education community and a range of statutory agencies.
Anyone concerned with educational provision in the 21st century should be reading this invaluable source of research.

Mike Fortune-Wood home educated his 4 children over a period of 20 years. He is a publisher and has run training courses for local authorities in England and Wales. He runs a major advice and campaigning website for home educators ( and founded the Journal of Home Education.
