Home education: The social motivation

Main Article Content

Christian W. Beck


Data from a Norwegian survey show correlation between a student’s socially related
problems at school and the parent’s social motivation for home education. I argue that more
time spent at school by a student could result in more socially related problems at school,
which can explain an increase in social motivation for home education.
