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.

Brief as antwoord op die GPS rubriek van Louwrens Selzer waar volgende bewering gemaak word : “Die groot fout wat baie ouers egter maak is om hul kinders uit die sogenaamde “onderwys maalkolk” te haal vir die tydperk van sy of haar skoolloopbaan en hul tuisonderig te gee of dan by ‘n privaatskool in te skryf. Hulle dra by wyse van spreuke dan oogklappe. Na skool, moet hul die egte Suid-Afrika in die oë kyk.”

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.
