A new South African policy on homeschooling has been passed but not without some controversy. Previously, parents had no guidelines for homeschooling in South Africa but a new policy has been created by the Council of Education Ministers (CEM) to address homeschooling in the African nation. Under the new law, parents will have to register to homeschool.
