Norfolk Home Learning

        From small beginnings to great success

Dressed like Convicts and Graded like Eggs!

The reasons many parents turn from school to home ed 

Sadly, bullying and anxiety top the list and need their own separate pages.

Home education certainly leads to happier social relationships - not just for youngsters

but for parents, too. However, there are lots of other reasons for choosing home ed:

Some schools neglect special talents or needs

Q: The teacher said the fast ones & slow ones were upsetting the class.

Q: Some schools are simply sausage factories; they crush individuality   

Q: Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to

climb a tree it will feel a fool for the rest of its life. (Einstein)

 Some parents seek a 'God-centred' approach to learning

Q: God is the greatest home truth of all 

They think schools pile on too much pressure

 Q: When he was six - yes, six - they called him a dimwit because he couldn't read

They prefer 'hands on' methods

like this home-based way of determining pi by throwing a stick

Q: I hear and I forget, I see and I remember, I do and I understand (Confucius)

They want their teens to realise their full potential 

Q: I hate to see him held back and discouraged

(See below for a sneering report on a budding composer.)

They hate school jargon

They want their children to develop naturally

Q They bring more home from the beach or the woods than they did from the classroom.

This way, we have lots of good times together and I find that I'm learning as much as they do.

Standards can sometimes be very low

Q: If the teachers can't spell how can the pupils?

They want their children to stand out

Q: Without a school record, he usually got an interview
