Liberty in Learning coalition

The BELA Bill and the Policy on Home Education seeks to curtail the freedom of home education.

CHE has joined hands with other home education associations, curriculum providers, consultants and like-minded individuals across South Africa to form the Liberty in Learning coalition.

CHE believes that children should have access to tailor-made education (from unschooling to an eclectic approach to distance learning and everything in between) that serves the best interests of the child and that this should be reflected in law and policy.

CHE will continue to engage with government in the hope that the BELA Bill and the Policy on Home Education will be amended to reflect the needs of home education families in the Western Cape.

For more information on the coalition and on the history of home education in South Africa, please visit the Liberty in Learning Facebook page.

The Liberty in Learning Coalition is a growing group of, at present, 19 organisations, associations, individuals, and home education curriculum providers in South Africa who share a common goal and are working for greater freedom in education.

Liberty in Learning’s goal is to (a) honour the responsibility of parents to serve the best interests of their children by promoting the freedom to tailor education to each child, and to (b) ensure that any laws governing education serve the best interests of the child and respect the role of family, community, and culture in education.

Members of the coalition agree to support and uphold our goals as well as the integrity of each individual and organisation associated to Liberty in Learning. Furthermore, the coalition serves as a place for various home education associations to meet and debate differences, in order to act as a united front in defending the above-mentioned goal.

Many of the Liberty in Learning members have been involved in ongoing dealings with the Department of Education on behalf of all home education families in all regions; advocating for the right to continue to choose in the best interest of the child and to preserve unique familial and cultural beliefs for generations to come.

If you agree with our goals and would like to join Liberty in Learning as a home education association or as an individual, then please email: admin@liberty-in-learning.org or info@liberty-in-learning.org
