Parents take education by the horns
Legal status of homeschooling:
In May 2007 the Department of Education published a manual detailing the requirements for homeschooling. The manual asks homeschools to register and requires testing at certain levels, but currently there is no enforcement of these requirements. Homeschoolers are not automatically awarded high school diplomas, so entrance into university may be difficult.
Number of Homeschoolers
TEACH ASIA has 300 enrolled homeschoolers from Macau, China, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Hong Kong, and Jakarta, Indonesia. They provide a legal covering, offer distance learning, use School of Tomorrow/ACE, use English, teach English as second language, provide a network of veteran home schoolers to help and train others, and have been in the ministry for over 15 years.
