Most Irish Children Now Taught by Parents at Home

The number of Irish parents teaching their children outside the confines of the traditional school has soared.  Figures obtained by the Sunday Independent under a Freedom of Information request reveal there are currently 1,090 home-educated children in Ireland, compared with 699 in 2011.  Experts say the reasons why Irish parents are embracing this kind of schooling are varied – and differ widely depending on family circumstances, writes Mark O’Regan.
