3rd year of PhD in 2012/13 academic year
The purpose of my PhD research is to investigate the views and experiences of home educated children and young people. The substantive focus for my research will be on England, although I intend to include a small number of home educated children and young people from the Netherlands. The study also explores how home educated children and school children view the portrayals of home education in the media. More widely it addresses how young people perceive education, schooling and learning. Biography.
