From a modest start made by a small group of parents in 1977, Education Otherwise (EO) has grown to become a well respected and vibrant registered charity, supporting and advising home educating families in England and Wales.
Our name comes from the Education Act, which states that parents are responsible for their children's education, ‘either by regular attendance at school or otherwise’ and we work to raise public awareness of the fact that education is compulsory, but school is not.
Our aim is to support and promote parents’ rights to provide their children with the best education for each of them, as individuals.
If you are considering home educating your child, or have just decided to do so, the following frequently asked questions may be helpful.
