Abstract: This paper aims to uncover the historical line of development that elective home education has taken in Scotland. Set within the context of the wider, global, home education movement, the ways in which the discovery and choice to home educate in Scotland have historically emerged and now operate, will be shown. An argument is made for more research on home education in Scotland to be conducted to help an identification of what education is in Scotland when it is not conflated with schooling.
