Home education in Tasmania is a legal option. The Education Act, 1994 (Tas.) changed the status of home education by establishing a registration process. Parents of a school-aged child must either enrol the child in a school or be registered as a home educator. In 1993 the Tasmanian Home Education Advisory Council was established to register home educators and for the periodic monitoring of the programs of all registered home educators. In 2002, there were 437 students representing 257 families enrolled through the Home Education Advisory Council.
