Homeschooling in South Africa
Homeschooling is alive and well in South Africa although relatively unheard of until about 10 years ago. Homeschooling has become a favoured choice by parents who want the best for their kids. Schools world wide are letting down families as a result parents are taking back their original God given duties, to train their children, teach them and protect them. I hope you find some of the contact information below useful.
If you wish to know more about homeschooling in South Africa I suggest the following,
- Visit and read as many South African homeschooling related website’s as you can un till you have a more general idea.
- Find a Homeschooling family or friend and meet with them first hand, ask them to advice you.
- Have an open mind, recognise that having a degree or diploma in teaching does not make you a teacher.
- Invest in some good books about homeschooling, or borrow some from a homeschooling friend.
