    I’m heartened to see reasonable numbers of hsers to age 15, though note a significant dip in raw numbers for 6 year olds.
    Are less applying? less succeeding in gaining exemption?
    or been put off by the antics of MOE agents?
    Are less people aware of homeschooling as an option for educating their children?

    Maybe we need to write articles in our local newspapers (the Education supplements must be coming out soon, contact local rags for inclusion)
    or appear on education forums in our local kindys, churches, schools, mother’s groups, etc.

    Thanks for publishing the statistics,
    Blessings,
