Rising Numbers Of Pupils Are Home Educated





 There has been a 65% increase in children recorded as home educated in the UK over six years.

Parents gave reasons including their lifestyle, dissatisfaction or disagreements with local schools, special needs, bullying and religion.

Responses to Freedom of Information requests from 190 local authorities showed 36,609 home educated children.

The government says it will continue to "respect the rights of parents to home educate their children".

There is no legal obligation for parents to send their children to school, although they have to provide a "suitable education" at home.
