Boom in Homeschooling in WA

Western Australia’s registered home educated population grew an impressive 17% from 1,889 students in 2012 to 2,211 students in 2013.

This compares with an annual average increase of 5.2% over the last fourteen years. 1,079 students were registered in 1999.

During the 1990’s the majority of families did not register. A number of government registration officials had reputations of being heavy-handed and insensitive towards home schooling families. Furthermore, during this period there was community suspicion and even hostility towards those who chose not to send their children to school. Gradually this perception changed and more families enrolled, as home schooling acceptance improved. Click here to read more.
