LEt Dr Rebecca English, Put your Mind At Ease.
School refusers are the highest growth group in homeschooling. Join Dr Rebecca English as she unpacks the research on school can’t (refusal), the impact on families and the ways that homeschooling families are able to manage their children’s schooling needs.
Drawn from research, both in the literature and Dr Rebecca English’s own research in the area, find out how parents are managing their homeschooling journeys after their child says they can’t go to school.
