The Case for Home Schooling by Anna DusseauHawthorn Press
“Many children’s lives are so busy with school journeys, subject changes, after-school clubs, and homework that they have little time to think or to take ownership of the life they are leading. They spend an awful lot of time being ‘processed’ by well-intentioned adults.... I will happily home educate my children all the way through their education, if that is what they want to do. They always have free choice, and we take their thoughts and feelings into account with every decision regarding their future.” —Anna Dusseau
