Welcome to the website of Manawatu Home Educators.
We are a group of home educating families who live in the Manawatu surrounding Palmerston North. While many of our members are situated in or close to Palmerston North, others come from further afield: Feilding, Woodville, Pahiatua, Bulls, Marton, Tokomaru, Foxton.
Manawatu Home Educators offers a number of benefits to members – including social gatherings, member support, a variety of regular activities, a Resource Library housing a wide range of resources, and much more.
We have a diverse range of members with many different homeschooling philosophies being followed.
Self-Taught is the follow-up movie to Class Dismissed. Both DVDs are housed in our Resource Library.
Through the stories of six extraordinary individuals, Self-Taught explores what self-directed education means to them and the impact it has had on their lives, ambitions, work and beliefs.
Whether Artist, Scientist, or Entrepreneur, they all have one thing in common: their belief that a true education is the capacity to author your own life instead of merely accepting the one you’ve been handed.
