and Channel 5 News reported on home-schooling children moving into mainstream schools. It carried expert comments from Associate Professor Jason Tan from the Policy Studies and Leadership Academic Group. He said that it is not expected that home-schooling would increase in the future. He opined that mainstream schools have their place in the educational landscape because parents are able to place their children in the care of professional educators who are not only competent in content knowledge but also, importantly pedagogical knowledge.
