An Article on Home Education the Sheffield Star has plenty of story for your money:

The importance of togetherness for the first family is very a significant quality of HE for many other families, and yet is often underplayed as a benefit, perhaps because it is so easy to take for granted.

Then there's the experience of the previously autonomously educated but now college educated teen, also in the first family. We have seen this story played out repeatedly amongst the HE teens around here. All the first swathe of autonomously educated people who we've known over a long period of time now are currently going about getting qualifications in their areas of interest and all are doing it with dedication and interest, unlike the many unwilling conscripts who have been doing this way too long.

The second story in the article covers the impact of probable benefit changes on HEing lone parents.
