Abstract

The goal of this research is to determine teachers’ opinions about the homeschooling service. Teachers participated in the research are the ones provided the homeschooling services in Sakarya City Centre within 2018-2019 school year. Qualitative research method has been used for the research and data has been collected via focus group discussion. Descriptive analysis technique has been used for analysing the obtained data. When the findings of the research are examined, participants who have been providing homeschooling services in a range of one to three years, stated that they had no prior information about homeschooling services, and they enhanced their knowledge level within the process of the education. Every single one of the participants specified that they all practiced observation and evaluation to determine educational performance and the needings of the students during the early weeks of homeschooling service, and afterwards they created individualized education plan (IEP) and figured the educational process according to this plan for their students. The lack of awareness about homeschooling, the families’ behaviours and experiencing insufficiency about the supplies are expressed as encountered problems within the homeschooling process. It is emphasized that the homeschooling service increases academic skills of the students while students’ distance from their peers and the social environment is a disadvantage.
