Due to the "new" language and information from other posts on this forum, we considered that our best option would be to home school the children initially, with private Bulgarian language tuition for the whole family. Then, depending on how well they pick it up, possibly moving them into BG state schools sometime down the line. I particularly feel for my 13-y-o that trying to cope with a new language and schooling at secondary school level would be too much to deal with straight away.
I have been trying to gather together home school resources from the internet and today I came across this link: - http://www.hslda.org/hs/international/B ... 307080.asp
which states that
and that it is only approved in exceptional circumstances for children with special educational needs."Homeschooling for most families is prohibited by educational authorities in Bulgaria"
Does anyone have any experience of this and/or know whether this would apply equally to the UK ex-pat community? I would love to hear from anyone else who is, or is considering, home educating in BG.
