Comments: I am a homeschooling parent however, whenever I tell others of what I'm doing, they would say to me that I'm breaking the law or it's illegal. Is homeschooling illegal?
Legally, you are supposed to see that your children attend school unless you have been exempt by the Ministry of Education for special reasons. We covered this already within this Thread.
Note: Due to the lack of accommodation and infrastructure, most times there aren't schools that cater for special needs like non-medicated ADHD or autistic children and parents are thus forced to home school their children and / or find extra curricular activities for them.
For instance, most schools will require someone with ADHD to be medicated, but the parents may not go for that because those drugs have terrible side effects.
Autistic children who cannot use the toilet or children in general who have some special needs where they cannot 'clean after themselves' will not be accepted into a school system.
If it is that your child is neurotypical then you are required by law to send him / her to school be it private or public.
I want to home school my daughter and the triplets when they are born. The problem is [people] frown upon it, please help.
What help do you want? You want us to tell you how to stop people from frowning down on it? That will not happen, people (More so Trinis) have a particular view point no matter if they are educated or not about it.
It is so [ridiculous] that every time I ask about it people say leave her in the school else she will not have a good education and she [won't] be able to get a good job. What about morals. I wish ATI could start holding conferences in Trinidad. If anyone could get in contact with them that would be so nice.
