The Liberty in Learning Coalition is a growing group of, at present, 24 organisations, associations, individuals, and home education curriculum providers in South Africa who share a common goal and are working for greater freedom in education.
Liberty in Learning’s goal is to (a) honour the responsibility of parents to serve the best interests of their children by promoting the freedom to tailor education to each child, and to (b) ensure that any laws governing education serve the best interests of the child and respect the role of family, community, and culture in education.
Members of the coalition agree to support and uphold our goals as well as the integrity of each individual and organisation associated with Liberty in Learning.
Furthermore, the coalition serves as a place for various home education associations to meet and debate differences, in order to act as a united front in defending the above-mentioned goal.
Many of the Liberty in Learning members have been involved in ongoing dealings with the Department of Education on behalf of all home education families in all regions; advocating for the right to continue to choose in the best interest of the child and to preserve unique familial and cultural beliefs for generations to come.
If you agree with our goals and would like to join Liberty in Learning as a home education association or as an individual, then please email: or
