HOME SCHOOLING is on the rise in Barbados and the Ministry of Education will be carrying out investigations to ensure that it is being done in the correct manner.
Parliamentary Secretary in the Ministry of Education Senator Harry Husbands said that from informal discussions with officials at the ministry, he has gathered that there was an increasing number of parents who have opted to teach their children an academic curriculum at home instead of sending them out to a public or private school.
He also said that more people were inquiring about this mode of education.
Speaking to the media yesterday after he toured Wills Primary School, Husbands said that he intended to look into the growing trend, as it presented the ministry with the challenge of additional responsibilities. (AH)
