A Heuristic study attempts to understand and visually illustrate the many varied personal, political & philosophical reasons families choose alternative education or elective home education for their children.
Through imagery, interviews, audio and video, the project aims to showcase the wide ranging pedagogical and heutagogical beliefs practiced by the community, from structured school at home, to fully autonomous or child-led education; where children are in charge of the direction of their own learning & parents act as facilitators to that educational journey.
