Verslag van Ronel van Rooyen oor hoe 'n spesifieke gesin tuisonderwys doen.
Objectives: To establish: -The success rate of home-schooling in South Africa - What home schooling entails - Is it more beneficial for kids to be home -schooled? - If home schooled children are high achievers Guest: Gerald Williamson – Educationist “It Depends on the learner and as well as the tutor. It’s not a one size fits all situation. Not everyone who is homeschooled is a high achiever.” Guest: Mr Bouwe van der Eems – Chairman for Pestalozzi Trust (a legal defence association for civil and home education) “Yes they are. They perform better academically.” Case Study who was home schooled: Lesley Russells
There are a number of misleading statements in the article, and the fact that the writer groups together home education, learning centres, tutor centres and cottage schools all under the heading "Home Schooling" results in an article which unfortunately would not be helpful for someone looking for proper information about home education. Karin van Oostrum has been quoted wrongly on an important matter.
Discussion on whether the state should prescribe a curriculum to homeschooling parents on the program "Interface" on SABC 3 on 29 January 2017. Participants are Bouwe van der Eems of the Pestalozzi Trust, Moses Simelane from Dept. of Basic Education and Lara Ragpot from University of Johannesburg.

Article on a boy who made history by enrolling at the University of Pretoria at just 14 years old is quite comfortable with people older than himself. This was made possible by home education. The boy completed a matric through the Cambridge route.

Onderhoud met Leendert van Oostrum en Yvonne Adams met Johan van Lill op die program "Groeipyne" op RSG op 14 Maart 2013.
Article by Leendert van Oostrum in the Natal Witness in October 1996. At this stage the SA Schools Act was not yet promulgated and was being considered by parliament. It is important to note that the arguments used against the SA Schools Bill are very similar to the arguments used against the BELA Bill in 2017. This means that the Department of Education has not learned anything about home education in 21 Years.
