Kenya On Verge of Banning Homeschooling

It's always about control


Kenyan parents' days of being able to educate their own children as they see fit may be coming to a close. In a last-minute desperation call, homeschool parents contacted the Virginia-based Home School Legal Defense Association for help to protect their age-old right.

And why could homeschooling soon be a thing of the past in the East African nation? The parliament in Kenya now contends that home instruction could be used by parents to hide abusive and negligent treatment of children from authorities.
