Information and Support for Home-Schoolers in Victoria AUS
In relation to home education… interestingly, Victoria is the only state which recognises the parent’s right to choose the education of their child over, or ahead of, the state’s “duty” to provide children with an education. All other states have chosen to put the duty of the state ahead of the rights of the parent/s.
