The rise of home education as some parents shun schools


There is a rising number of parents choosing to shun schools and teach their children at home.

The popularity of home education has tripled in Cambridgeshire in just five years.

In 2010 there were 200 children known to be educated outside of a traditional classroom. That had risen to 605 by 2015.

In Hertfordshire there are currently 650 children registered as home-educated. In Northamptonshire it's 509.

And in the Central Bedfordshire area, 235 are known to be home educated at the moment.

Ipswich Town have signed Fulham winger Ben Pringle on an initial month's loan.

There is an agreement for the 26-year-old to stay at Portman Road for the rest of the season if he impresses.

Pringle will help cover for the loss of Ryan Fraser who has been ruled out for the next two months.

He is available to make his debut at Bristol City tomorrow (February 13).

“When the opportunity came up to come here on loan, it was an easy decision.

I know Mick McCarthy’s stature in the game and what he has achieved and that was a big pulling power.

I knew there was interest in me from Ipswich last summer when I left Rotherham. I wasn’t offered a contract here or anything like that but I’m delighted to have the opportunity to join the club now.

Fulham are my parent club and it will depend on what they say but if things go well for me here and Ipswich are happy with me, I’d definitely be interested in getting something done here for the future.”
