I have taken the decision to home-school my kids.
Going against the grain is always odd for people and home-schooling still has an ultra-religious, hippy connotation attached to it. Granted many of the home-schooling moms that I have consulted thus far are either very conservative Christians or Muslims, my reasons are multiple, but are primarily around safety.
A child is raped every few minutes in South Africa, in various suburbs, in various settings, in white areas, at private schools.Sexual violence reached new heights last year. Children were being raped at school. Perpetrators were either fellow school kids or they were teachers. Boys and girls fell victim.
