Stem takties

Tuisskolers wat hul stemme in the verkiesing uitbring, moet duidelik verstaan watter effek hul stem kan hê op die toekoms van tuisonderwys. Soos elders op hierdie blad aangetoon, kan die tuisskoolstem vir die eerste keer in die geskiedenis ’n invloed hê op wie saampraat wanneer daar in die vergaderings, komitees en wandelgange van die nasionale en provinsiale wetgewers oor tuisonderwys gepraat word.
