Jack visits Homeschoolers

Jack today visited a group of youngsters who are homeschooled by their parents. They had expressed an interest in meeting their MP in one of their Government and politics modules, and Jack was happy to oblige.

Jack fielded questions from the young people, who meet up regularly as a group, and discussed many aspects of his job with them, including how he got into politics, what motivates him and what his typical day is like. Jack also asked them about homeschooling, what they thought about not being educated in school and what they felt the advantages and drawbacks were. He was also asked whether he had ever asked a question in Prime Minister's Questions, whether he considered himself a celebrity and if he had ever met anyone famous. He was able to tell them that he had had conversations with David Cameron and Arnold Schwarzenegger!

'I really enjoyed my time meeting the homeschoolers,' said Jack. I felt they asked some very mature and sensible questions, and displayed an excellent understanding of politics and the political process. I was fascinated to learn more about homeschooling, and listen to their views on the advantages and disadvantages it brings them.'
