**Before there is any discussion on "home-schooling" , I would like to question the term altogether. Can we not avoid the term "home-schooling" completely, including in the headings? I don't like it because it suggests parents take their children out of school and then try to reproduce some sort of school at home! I have thought long and hard about this, and have come to the conclusion that "home-learning" is the best term.
Even that phrase can be questioned, because it suggests learning is limited to within the walls of a house. Is it not better to see it as learning within the wider community?**
