SIM Ep 236 Chops 98: a home educating what's what with Hazel Davis

Back in our magazine days, journalist and keen home edder Hazel Davis used to write a fortnightly column – Hey! Teachers! I’ll leave my kids at home – charting her adventures in home schooling her two little ones. 

The government is currently consulting on plans to launch a new register of children in England being educated at home. It’s estimated there are nearly 60,000 kids being home schooled, but no one really knows because so far no register. We thought it was a good time to catch up with Hazel to talk about the proposals and also to chat home edding pros and cons in general.

Whether you’re already home edding your kids or thinking about it for the future, this is a must listen.
