It is not often that I find myself crying my eyes out in front of the computer, but this Guardian article on home education has done it and done it for a whole bunch of good reasons. It is one of the first accurate, humane and insightful accounts of what it means to be a home educator that I have read in the mainstream media. For that alone, I am crying with relief.
And Ann's story - I defy anyone not to be moved by it.
Thank you The Newstead Family and thank you Dave. Have got to go find a box of tissues.
