Post subject: English speaking tutor needed
Reply with quote

Hi all, I am in need of an English speaking tutor for Maths, English and Bulgarian for my two children aged 11 and 15. We are in the Yambol region. We have homeschooled for the past 3 years and would like to continue to do so if possible.

Please could you get in touch if you are a tutor or know of any in the area please?

Many thanks indeed

Steve

I don't wish to be the damp cloth again, but I thought that I read on here recently that Home Schooling is not allowed in Bulgaria. Question

HSLDA

I read recently but can't remember where, that a Government vote on the subject was due in September.

A trawl of Official Gazettes might be in order for the OP.

Your right MW home schooling is illegal in BG, children up to the age of 16 years have to attend a state school.

I have heard that in some cases the schools have been very good at laying on extra Bulgarian classes and support for non Bulgarian speakers, but I think they will find the style of Education here very different from the UK style. It is nearly all face the front, listen and remember by rote from what I understand. Very very good for maths and sciences, not so good on the humanities.

Wow NEWS FLASH!!!

http://www.standartnews.com/english/read/bulgaria_allows_homeschooling-9618.html

Bulgaria's children of compulsory school age are now having the option to study at home. MPs this week voted for a homeschoolong amendment in the text of the Law on schools and preschools.

Up to now only children with special talents or needs were given the option of home training, however, the new law gives the green light to the so-called individual form of education to all childeren under 16 as well.

The children who learn at home have to sit an exam each year to check how they mastered the material. If it is established that they do not do well, parents are required to enroll the child in another form of education.

To teach the child on its own, the family has to be authorized to do so by an expert committee of the regional department of education.

The decision raised sharp debate, as MPs from the BSP indicated that this creates difficulties for the socialization of children and parents. They also indicated that there is a risk some families to leave their children at home for religious reasons, which hides the danger of radicalization.

Committee Chairman Milena Damianova countered that the state actually introduces control and that even now 500 children study at home and are not covered by the educational system.

Mastered the material, sounds like they have to stick to the national curriculum.

Post subject: Home schooling British Children
Reply with quote

Many thanks all for the positive replies. This is something we looked into before moving to Bg. It is illegal for Bulgarian children to be home educated (well it was at the time of researching back in the UK) but not for British children. My lad has Tourettes and has been homes schooled for the past 3 years or more. We are only looking for a little help as English reference books are very hard to come by here. We have been in touch with Krassi and Dylianna, both were amazing. Many thanks

That's interesting, astro - so the law here doesn't apply to foreigners? That may be the case but it sounds a little unlikely - and fluency in Bulgarian sounds like a sine qua non....

But it is possible to home school a child here who has a disability, regardless of nationality.
