The NCHENZ would like to hear from all Home Educators not just members.
The 2015 Home Education Survey
As you may remember we ran our first Home Education survey in November 2013. We chose to do this because there were very few studies of home education carried out in New Zealand and therefore very little understanding of the breadth and depth of the community. This continues to be the case. (From HEF: The Home Education Foundation via TEACH Bulletin did a few survey's back in the '80s and '90s but there have been none in the last 15 or so years except for NCHENZ's survey back in 2013.)
We are once again hoping to gain a good overview of our existing NCHENZ members; your aims, your concerns and, of course, some basic statistics.
Please note that this survey is anonymous. We are not collecting any identifiable information about respondents with one specific exception which will become clear when you reach the end of the survey. In this instance it is totally voluntary to answer this question.
As you are not identifiable, we ask that you respect the intent of the survey, and fill it in as accurately and fairly as possible.
You are welcome to forward this email on to home educating friends who are not currently members of NCHENZ for them to contribute to the survey. There is a link at the bottom of this email that allows you to do this.
If you have any questions regarding the survey, please feel free to contact us by email.
On behalf of the National Council of Home Educators New Zealand,
NCHENZ Executive Committee
In the early days of Home Education in New Zealand Craig organised a number of surveys through Keystone and TEACH Bulletin. It was good to get as many home educators as possible to answer the surveys. These surveys were very helpful.
I don't think any surveys have been done for at least 15 years now except for the NCHENZ 2013 survey.
There have been a couple of indepth studies done in the last 10 years.
It would be wonderful if as many people as possible filled out this anonymous survey being done by NCHENZ.
TEACH magazine surveys are not online at the moment
Please share this information – thanks

Hello everyone,For those who haven't heard, I have taken over doing the Scholastic Book Club orders from Kerstin.The first lot of booklets for 2015 have just arrived and are ready to send out to anyone who may want to order books.They have made some changes for this year, so instead of getting lots of smaller booklets, Lucky, Arrow, Star, etc, they are all combined into one booklet.Currently I have only myself and one other person on my list of people who receive them.But I thought there surely should be others who are interested in buying books too..So if anyone would like to buy Scholastic book club books, please let me know and I will send you a booklet.Or if you want some more information, I'm happy to help.Phone: (03) 7625172Or leave a commentLook forward to hearing from you,Cheers,Tracey.
