Have you ever considered home education? But you have worries. What about socialisation? How will they get a good education at home? Is it wrong of me to take them out of school? Many are interested in home education but fear that taking on the responsibility of their children's education will place them at a disadvantage, socially and academically. There are many myths surrounding home education that discourage concerned parents going down this lesser trodden path. But it may surprise you to know that the research, the facts and the figures, actually point in another direction – that home education offers up an opportunity for your child to be better socialised and better educated.

Would you like to know more? Then come listen to Gwen Murphy, an experienced educator and researcher, put forward the case for home education. She uses her years of teaching and research in the area to dispel the most common myths associated with home education.
