  • The Dumfries and Galloway Parenting Science Gang

Abstract

A study on flexischooling in Scotland designed and carried out by a user-led citizen science group using a variety of methods to ascertain flexischooling numbers and local policies in Scotland, parents views, and teachers views. Findings include: an estimation of flexischooling numbers in Scotland; the over-representation of Additional Support for Learning pupils in flexischooling numbers; the motivating factors for why parents choose to flexischool their children; the surprisingly positive experiences of teachers with experience of teaching flexischooling pupils.
