Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
The Frequently Asked Questions page is designed to help you find answers on this site to some commonly-asked questions.
The most basic question is: What is home schooling / home education? Well, first, it is NOT school at home. Second it is NOT Correspondence School. Third, it is NOT supplementary tutoring. Fourth it is NOT where students are enrolled in a school but exempted from attendance for disciplinary and similar reasons. All of these groups have some things in common with home schoolers, and may find help on this site.
However, our target is New Zealand parents / guardians teaching their children (or possibly arranging private tutoring) without having them enrolled in a school. If the children are between six and 16, then the parents must get an exemption from enrollment.
