Our Mission


Since its inception in 1992, the Association for Homeschooling has promoted the recognition of the right of parents to educate their children within the family in South Africa, as it is recognised in art. 26 of the Universal Declaration of Human Right which states: “Parents have a prior right to choose the kind of education that shall be given to their children.” Since 2010, the Association also promotes these parental rights in the larger Southern Africa region.

Public schools and shrinking churches

Posted on
There is a tendency in many churches for young people to abandon the church altogether. It is said that they “graduate out of church”. A variety of reasons are proposed, but the influence of public schooling is seldom noticed. When the National Curriculum was introduced in 2002, one of the greatest objections was the promotion of the religion of Interfaith, especially in the subject “Life Orientation”. According to the religion of...

Western Cape attacks homeschoolers

Posted on
Homeschooling parents were recently shocked when the Western Cape Education Department (WCED) not once, but twice attempted to curb the liberty of parents to choose what is in the best interest of their children. On 11 February the WCED issued Draft 8 of a proposed policy on home education that unlawfully requires parents to use the state curriculum, register before 30 September of the year before they can start homeschooling, prohibiting...

The results of research can be used to protect the right to homeschool. For example when the results of research...

Tuisonderwys bedreig in Suid-Afrika

Posted on
Leendert van Oostrum skryf in die Desember 2013 nuusbrief van die Pestalozzi Trust ’n artikel met die titel : “Onweerswolke dreig vir tuisonderwys”. Hiervolgens het die fenomenale groei van tuisonderwys in Suid-Afrika oor die laaste 20 jaar die aandag getrek van die staat, vakbonde en groot beleggers. Dit lyk of hierdie partye begin saamwerk om meer beheer oor tuisonderwys te kry. As ouers niks doen nie, en hierdie samewerking slaag, sal...

SA Universities to limit admission through foreign matric?

Posted on
There has been a trend over the last years that homeschooling parents are moving away from the South African matric (National Senior Certificate or NSC), and prefer an international matric such as Cambridge or GED/SATS, due to the high costs and the large amount of effort required to get an NSC through home education. This trend is potentially affecting the business of curriculum suppliers that offer the NSC to homeschoolers. A...

Ons Missie

Sedert sy oprigting in 1992 het die Vereniging vir Tuisonderwys hom beywer vir die erkenning van ouers se reg om hulle kinders binne familieverband op te voed in Suid-Afrika, soos dit erken word in art. 26 van die Universele Verklaring van Menseregte wat verklaar: “Ouers het die reg om te kies watter tipe opvoeding hulle kinders ontvang.” Sedert 2010 bevorder die vereniging hierdie ouerlike regte ook in die Suider-Afrikaanse streek.
