While most parents are outraged that home schooling during quarantine has negatively affected the quality of students' knowledge, a family from Australia has long transferred their children to self-education.

The couple, who have four children, believe that the school exerts "excessive pressure". They claim that children learn much more in nature than at the desk. Their sons choose what they want to learn and draw the necessary knowledge from the environment.

She didn't have that opportunity at school. Seeing that natural learning has had such a positive impact on Ebony, the parents decided not to send Bodhi and Kai to school.
