Hi. This is a blog set up by me, Sally Fraser, to raise awareness of the harm done to children, adults and society as a whole by boarding education. I became interested in the issues surrounding boarding because I married an ex-boarder, but also because as a mother I believe in the importance of raising children at home.
On this site I have gathered together various articles describing the negative effects of boarding, and where the issue sits in relation to the law and children’s rights. You are very welcome here.
You can also watch a debate about this here:
At the moment I am largely taking a break from campaigning, but a group still exists which you can connect with via facebook, and Sam Barber still heads up a feed on twitter @B_S_Action.
I am still deeply committed to bringing an end to boarding school for young children, but at present I am working creatively and independently on this issue. If you are interested in my work you can get in me with us using this form:
