Home education on the news

A DOZEN friends and family of a young autistic boy took to the skies to raise £3,500 for his continuing home education.


Alison was shocked when her five-year-old daughter Lily did not get a place at the nearest school, and education bosses offered her a place at a school two miles away, instead. She decided that she did not want Lily to have to travel unsupervised in a taxi, and began to give her home tuition.

A council spokesman said: “We have provided guidance and information regarding home education grants."
