South Korea

It must be a sign of a healthy progression towards an open society when home education is recognised as a legal option. South Koreans have reached the stage of thinking about such a proposal.

"The Ministry of Education and Human Resources Development (MOE) is examining a measure to acknowledge home schooling as an official academic background".

It's still early days however.

"The MOE noted that even if it recognizes home schooling as official, it will restrictively permit home schooling under the strict standard of demanding information on subjects, materials, and instructors by superintendent of educational affairs in cities and provinces and for the lowest academic performance of the student".
