  4. Hi Jen 🙂 Firstly is like to say how much I admire your Home Schooling ethic and structure. I’m an Assistant Principal in a large Secondary school in the South East of England. Some of our parents say they are going to Home School, particularly when their children are on the edge of exclusion. I know they’re not, not really. I always imagine you and your philosophy: You ought to advise and monitor home schooling!! I’d love to win this please, all ready to organise the new school year!!

    1. Katie,
      Thank you so very much for your kind words! You’re so right – home education must be chosen for the good and worthy potential it offers, and not as a reaction to a negative – otherwise, a home educator will never make it through those days. Best of luck to you in this giveaway and thank YOU for all you do in education!
