    I would think it would go against their educational philosophy? Maybe if the child wanted to do it.

    It is self funded.

    I imagine it would get quite costly with multiple unschooled kids if they are doing as many activities that has been stated along with having only a one income family if one parent is unschooling all day?
    It can be as costly or as inexpensive as you make it. You need to take into consideration school fees, uniforms, books, camps, excursions. However these things can happen in home or unschooling situations too of course, we do things based on our finances and what the kid's interests are at the time.

    Oh ok. So you can't get newstart and be exempt for looking for work? What normally happens when your parenting payment runs out (when the youngest turns 6)? You get nothing except FTB?

    No one has to do NAPLAN. I pulled my DD out this week due to moving and the stress she already has with half yearlys, moving, assessments etc. One teacher wasn't impressed, but care factor of zero lol I can't stand NAPLAN anyway, not a fan of standardised testing.

    And yes Mushie was correct. Home schooling is an exemption. So a parent can indefinitely sit on Newstart without fulfilling any Mutual Obligations like looking for work or work for the dole for however long they home school. So it isn't self funded
