Experiences of Muslim Home School Families in England and The Possibility of Home Schooling in Turkey
İngiltere’de Müslüman Ailelerin Ev Okulu Tecrübeleri ve Türkiye’de Ev Okulunun İmkânı

Abdurrahman Hendek [1]


This article aims to explore the experiences of Muslim families who prefer home schooling in England. Case study approach within qualitative research paradigm is applied in this research which seeks to explore what home schooling is in England and how and why Muslim families use it. For this purpose, interviews were conducted with Muslim families who prefer home schooling and related literature, publications of Muslim home school associations and blogs of families sharing their home school experiences on the internet were examined. The data obtained were coded and analysed by a qualitative analysis method. It is found that families who prefer home schooling are granted a wide range of rights in England. The lack of high quality Muslim schools, unimportance attached to religious and moral education in state schools, school teaching that contradicts Islamic faith and bullying, discrimination, peer pressure and sexual exposure in schools are among the reasons why Muslim families prefer home schooling. In addition, Muslim families seem to question the quality of academic education in state schools. It is found that the majority of Muslim families who prefer home schooling do not have a teaching certificate and mothers are generally responsible for home schooling. However, home schooling seems to be a social and collective movement rather than an education confined to a single house or limited by the knowledge of a single parent. The article discusses the possibility of home schooling in Turkey and concludes with some recommendations.

Bu makale İngiltere’de Müslüman ailelerin “ev okulu” (home schooling) tecrübelerini incelemeyi amaçlamaktadır. Nitel araştırma yöntemlerinden durum çalışmasının kullanıldığı çalışmada İngiltere’de ev okulunun ne olduğu, Müslüman aileler tarafından nasıl ve niçin uygulandığı sorularının cevapları aranmıştır. Bunun için, İngiltere’de ev okulunu tercih eden Müslüman ailelerle mülakatlar yapılmış, bunun yanında ilgili literatür, Müslüman ev okulu derneklerinin yayınları ve ev okulu tecrübelerini internet üzerinden paylaşan ailelerin blogları incelenmiştir. Elde edilen veriler nitel analiz metoduyla kodlanmış ve analiz edilmiştir. Bulgular göstermektedir ki İngiltere’de ev okulunu tercih eden ailelere geniş haklar tanınmıştır. Kaliteli Müslüman okulların çok fazla olmaması, devlet okullarında din ve ahlak eğitimine yeterince önem verilmemesi, İslam inancıyla çelişen bilgilerin öğretilmesi ve okullarda zorbalık, ayrımcılık, akran baskısı ve cinsel teşhir Müslüman ailelerin ev okulunu tercih etme sebepleri arasındadır. Bunun yanında Müslüman aileler devlet okullarındaki akademik eğitimin de kalitesini sorgulamaktadır. Ev okulunu tercih eden Müslüman ailelerin önemli bir kısmının öğretmenlik sertifikasına sahip olmadığı ve genelde annelerin ev okulundan sorumlu olduğu görülmektedir. Ancak ev okulunun tek bir evin içine hapsedilmiş ya da tek bir ebeveynin bilgi birikimi ile sınırlandırılmış bir eğitimden ziyade sosyal ve kolektif bir hareket olduğu görülmektedir. Makale Türkiye’de ev okulunun imkanı ile ilgili tartışma ve önerilerle son bulmaktadır.
