In New Brunswick, the Minister of Education is responsible for administering the Education Act. The Act states that, as of July 1, 1999, children between five and eighteen years of age inclusive must attend school (section 15) unless the Minister is satisfied that the child is under “effective instruction elsewhere” (section 16).
If a parent chooses not to have his/her child schooled in the public education system, the parent must provide for the child’s “effective instruction” either at a recognized independent school or through home schooling. Home schooling is providing educational instruction at home by parents/guardians.
