The truth is that home education is a generic term for the myriad types of learning available to children whose parents have chosen to take charge of their education rather than leaving it to \"the professionals\". It’s as easy and as difficult to define as \"home cooking\". It’s a lot easier to point out what it isn’t!
Many families learn together especially with younger children. Despite the dire warnings of \"the experts\" parents certainly are capable of overseeing their child’s learning. More importantly parents have a vested interest in seeing that the lessons fit the child rather than the other way around as in institutional education centers (\"schools\") where education is \"one-size-fits-all\".
