High School exiting option for home-schoolers in South Africa.pdf

Home-schooling is an alternative to mainstream schooling where parents take responsibility for the education of their own children. This is an increasingly common choice for some who feel that they could better educate their child at home, choosing curricula of their choice that fits in with their family beliefs and values. However, the difficulty may come in securing a school leaver’s certificate for the child at the end of Grade 12, with which they may gain access into tertiary institutions for further study. In this study an online survey tool was used to gain empirical data from parents of home-schoolers, assessing the various curriculum paths they chose to educate their children. It was found that there are three possible exit strategies for South African home-schoolers which provide a National Senior Certificate, or equivalent. Furthermore, various delivery methods and pedagogical and presentation styles were identified. In addition, the costs incurred and the difficulties presented by various curriculum providers were explored. Finally the findings are summarized and recommendations are made for policy changes that will allow alternate access routes into tertiary institutions.
