NEW FIGURES FROM Child and Family Agency Tusla have revealed that the number of children home-schooled in Ireland has increased at a rate of knots in recent years.
The statistics, first reported upon this morning in the Irish Daily Mail, show that the total number of children receiving at-home education in Ireland climbed from 699 in 2011 to 1,322 last year, an increase of 89%.

With numbers on the increase however, it seems the idea is becoming more socially acceptable.
