    One thought on “Alternative Approaches to Education: A Guide for Parents and Teachers”

    1. A neat and concise, if not particularly in-depth look at educational options within the UK. I personally didn't find it particularly useful because I knew of most of the systems mentioned and had decided to home educate already. I think this book would be of more use to someone who knew very little about the education system and was just beginning to think about alternatives to mainstream state schooling.
