Education is compulsory - school is optional

About EO's lists and forums

EO Yahoo! HE support list

This email list is open to both EO members and non-members, offering a virtual meeting point and source of informal, mutual support for anyone home educating, or considering home educating, in the UK. 

EO Yahoo! HE debate list

This email list is open to both EO members and non-members, offering a forum for robust debate on matters relating to HE. 

EO Yahoo! single parent list

This list is for single parents who are home educating or considering home education for their families. Whilst there is a 'general' email list for home educators, sometimes single parents face unique problems. This list is to allow single parents to offer support, experience and information relating to their situation. 

EO member forum

The forum is provided by Education Otherwise for the benefit of its members and is accessible from the members-only area of the website. It is not open to the public, or to LA personnel or students doing research on Home Education. Researchers should email EO via the contact page, and we can then post the information on the forum on their behalf.

The comments on the forum represent the views of the forum members. Although it can be very helpful to hear the views and experiences of others, the Trustees of Education Otherwise recommend that forum members to not see this as a substitute for professional advice.
