QuoteHomeschooling allows students to work at their own pace and parents to blend family, life and schoolwork into their own schedule. Homeschooling is the full responsibility of the parent, is not supervised by a British Columbia certified teacher, is not required to meet provincial standards, and is not inspected by the Ministry of Education.- http://www.bced.gov.bc.ca/home_school/
QuoteUnder Part 2, Div. 4, Sections 12-14 of the BC School Act, parents may choose to register their children as homeschoolers. This must be done by Sept. 30th of each year, and the parent(s) must provide their child(ren) with "an educational program". The "educational program" is not defined specifically except to say that it means "an organized set of learning activities that, in the opinion of the parent ... is designed to enable learners to develop their individual potential and to acquire the knowledge, skills and attitudes needed to contribute to a healthy, democratic and pluralistic society and a prosperous and sustainable economy" [Part 1, Section 1, "educational program" Part (c), BC School Act ]; does not need to be approved by any school board nor assessed by any teacher; testing, assessment, visits, or reporting are not required.- http://bchla.bc.ca/homeschool-option.html

Sending children to a specialist school is quite unnatural. But given the society we live in where families are generally nuclear and the 'tribe' has essentially disappeared a school, I would agree, is the better option now. My wife got her PhD in child development study and lectures on the subject at university (till she retires at the end of September). She has also written books on the subject, one of which was translated into Chinese! But none of this qualifies me in any particular fashion except insomuch as I have proof read all the stuff she has written over the decades
