Canada also has a large and growing homeschooling movement, with a number of homeschooled children nationwide "around 60,000,"
according to an article in the September 1, 1997 issue of MacLean's magazine.
That figure would suggest about 1 percent of Canadian school-age children are homeschooled, a proportion consistent with provincial figures I am still gathering.
Canada enjoys an excellent
World Wide Web site with pan-Canadian information about homeschooling,
put together as a cooperative effort by homeschoolers from coast to coast in that vast country.
Astounding example of pan-national cooperation among homeschoolers who in most instances have never met one another in person.
Links to information about every province in Canada.
An inspiration to me, as it should be to every homeschooler in other countries.
Multipage site of a Saskatchewan homeschooling organization.

A general State education is a mere contrivance for moulding people to be exactly like one another: and as the mould in which it casts them is that which pleases the predominant power in the government, whether this be a monarch, a priesthood, an aristocracy, or the majority of the existing generation in proportion as it is efficient and successful, it establishes a despotism over the mind, leading by a natural tendency to one over the body.
John Stuart Mill On Liberty (1859)
