Home-Based Education in Sweden: Local Variations in Forms of Regulation
Villalba, Cynthia M.
Theory and Research in Education, v7 n3 p277-296 2009
In Sweden approximately 100 children a year are in home-based education, which is regulated by local policies that interpret legislation and guide practice. Based on a detailed analysis of documents drawn up in two municipalities, the article highlights different interpretations of the role and requirement of "insyn" (insight) in the governance and monitoring of home education through municipal authority-home arrangements. (Contains 9 notes.)
