    Research on the Radicalisation of Home Educated Children

    In 2015, A spokesman for the Department for Education said: “We are determined to tackle radicalisation wherever it occurs. We have provided Ofsted with extra inspectors to eradicate extremism in education.

    “We are working with them to address their concerns about home education being exploited, while safeguarding the rights of parents to determine how and where to educate their children.”

    This came after three unregistered schools shut down by Ofsted in Birmingham were offering a narrow Islamic-based curriculum using antisemitic, homophobic and misogynistic materials.  This, in my opinion, is a separate issue from home education but once again places a spotlight on the HE Community for the wrong reasons.

    New research (PDF) by the charity, Personalised Education Now, did not find any evidence of radicalisation in the home education community.

    The research, conducted over a long period, included sending FOI’s to the UK Government and Local Government, interrogating Interpol’s database and searching new agency reports and the internet generally.

    Not one method found any evidence supporting the claim that radicalisation had occurred within the home education community.
