Home education is generally less expensive than school education, because home education does not require school buildings and teachers. However, in families where both parents work outside the home, the choice for home education often requires that one of the parents has to stop working, in order to be involved in the education of the children. Due to the loss of this income, many parents view home education as an expensive form of education. However, if all the costs of schooling (e.g. school fess, clothes, transport), as well as the costs associated with working, are taken into account, home education is not as expensive as is generally perceived. The online calculator is an attempt to provide a tool to calculate to nett cost of home education.
