Is our education system based in theory of how best to learn? Does our education system cause children to be labelled? What happens if your child doesn't fit well with the schooling system? Is school really the best way to learn? What does home education look like and is it a poor substitute for school? Are children who are home educated destined to be society's drop outs? What are the consequences of school-based trauma for adult learning? Might referring to offending behaviour interventions in prison as "courses" run by "tutors" backfire when people had troubled relationships with school?
Dr Naomi Fisher is both an expert in the conventional sense and an expert by experience as she talks about her own time at school and her later challenges in understanding the pros and cons of home educating children.
