Hi, Sorry if this has been posted already on Mumsnet, but if not, I thought you might be interested in a weekend Conference which has been organised by Schoolhouse Home Education Association and will take place in Arbroath, Angus on 12 September to mark International Freedom in Education Day 2008.
"The one day conference, 'Learning Without Limits: a celebration of choice, diversity and freedom in education', will focus on the broad theme of freeing education from the confines of traditional schooling and will form part of a weekend programme of informal networking, arts and heritage activities for families and interested individuals from across the UK and Europe."
The guest speaker is John Taylor Gatto from New York.
Booking information is now available from Schoolhouse by email: conference@schoolho use.org.uk; or telephone 01307 463120 for further details.
Hi Stopfighting, I usually just lurk on Mumsnet (not sure how many fellow Scots are here), but wondered if even families South of the Border would fancy a short break in Scotland? Not sure how well you know Arbroath and the surrounding area, but I have enjoyed what I've seen of it and there's plenty of cheap accomodation. We'll be there and hopefully the kids will find it fun, but educational.
Hi Claire. There are loads of mums on here who have done that and would be happy to chat. But the best thing is probably to start up a separate thread with something like that in the title, as not everyone will be looking on this thread if they've already read it, so they may not spot you!
