I got this book alongside Terri Dowty's excellent "Free Range Education". Although this book is targeted at the American market, a lot of the information provided here is relevant to the situation in England. I particularly like the "FAQ" section in it in which the authors tackle very amply the sort of questions and doubts frequently expressed by those who don't support homeschooling and those who aren't sure of the homeschooling approach. After reading this book, I am more certain than ever that taking my child out of school (and a state school at that) is probably one of the very best things I've done for her. Read this book and make up your own mind, but don't say you've not been warned... it could change your mind!
