2013 NZ Home Education Survey – deadline 18 November

In the early days of Home Education in New Zealand Craig organised a number of surveys through Keystone and TEACH Bulletin. It was good to get as many home educators as possible to answer the surveys. These surveys were very helpful.

I don’t think any surveys have been done for at least 10 years now.

There have been a couple of indepth studies done in the last 10 years.

It would be wonderful if as many people as possible filled out this anonymous survey being done by NCHENZ.

2013 NZ Home Education Survey

Our quest to serve the best interests of the Home Education community continues!

As you may know, there are very few studies of home education in New Zealand and therefore very little understanding of the breadth and depth of our community.  We aim to add to that understanding by creating information gathering surveys that are written by home educators for home educators.

We hope to gain a good overview of the New Zealand homeschooling community –  your aims, your concerns and, of course, some basic statistics.  The gathered results may be used to promote the positive aspects of home education, as well as to dispel any myths or misunderstandings held by others in the wider community.

Please note that this survey is anonymous.  We are not collecting any identifiable information about respondents, and individual responses will not be shared.  As this is the case, we ask that you respect the intent of the survey, and fill it in as accurately and fairly as possible.

The survey should take you approximately five minutes to complete and, hopefully, the questions are self-explanatory.  Please complete it at one sitting as it is not possible to return to alter your responses should you exit part way through. The survey will be available until 8am Monday 18th November, after which time we will be closing it to further entries.

If you have any questions regarding the survey, please feel free to contact us by email.


Please feel free to forward, email, share, etc  – thankyou
