Ina Cronje – Out of Line? YESSSSSSSSSSSSSS

It was reported in the Mercury yesterday that KZN MEC for Education Ina Cronje has slammed home schooling saying it has seriously negative impact on the overall development of children; and she points to the socialising benefits offered by formal schooling. Proponents of home schooling quote deficiencies in the current curriculum as one of the main reasons for choosing to educate their children themselves. Does the Minister have a point or is she out of line here?

    I do not know much about home schooling but that I do feel that schools need some more focus and better organisation from a management point of view. This also impacts on teaching as whole. I can therefore definately see the point of doing home schooling and I also feel that it should be formalised and maybe be more controlled so that it can be an option for parents!
