A pilot study to investigate reasons for elective home education for Gypsy and Traveller children in Hampshire

Record type: Monograph (Project Report)

In October 2008 Hampshire County Council (Ethnic Minority and Traveller Achievement Service) funded a research project to examine the reasons for elective home education for Gypsy and Traveller (GT) groups in Hampshire. The research was carried out in Hampshire where there are a large number of Gypsy and Traveller families. The GT groups who participated in the research were from English Romany backgrounds. This report is based on 6 interviews with parents (5 of whom were already home educating and one family who were considering home education in the near future) and 4 educational professionals who were involved with different aspects of home education (ranging from largely administrative duties such as recording families who were home educating in the county, through practitioners who were advising/monitoring home education and policy makers responsible for implementing home education).
