Mother says her kids learn at home
MOTHER of seven Kerri Mooney yesterday defended public claims that she was not educating her children properly through home schooling.
The Gracemere mum said she was educating her three school-aged children through a Victorian model based in Werribee.
Ms Mooney is under pressure from Queensland Education to either return her children to school or register them through the state's home-schooling unit.
But after becoming dissatisfied with Queensland's education system, Ms Mooney decided to get her equipment and deal with home-schooling in Victoria.
She pulled her children out of school two years ago after her son was physically bullied on several occasions.
She said every day her children sat down to learn from set education books in a home environment.
“They are still learning, but they're not getting bullied at home,” Ms Mooney said.
Home schooling is set out so children can work at their own pace.
