Abstract

Home schooling, as an alternate model of education, is emerging as a growing educational phenomenon throughout Australia. This paper critiques home schooling as an educational expression of parental responsibility for the education of children. Issues of child protection and duty-of-care are examined in the light of relevant legislative frameworks. Current notions of state and parental responsibility for educational provision are discussed in the light of critical theories.
