Gita Mateja de Laat was born on 26-6-1975 in Ljubljana, Slovenia. She currently live in a small village called Luče, nearby a small town called Grosuplje. She studied History and at the moment she is a PhD candidate in education sciences at the University of Primorska in Koper. The topic of her doctoral study is home education in a broader context. She published an article on homeschooling in Slovenia in a scientific pedagogical journal Sodobna pedagogika/ journal of Contemporary Educational Studies no. 4, 2016. In September 2016 she presented my research on Homeschooling in Europe in the past and present with the emphasis on 18th and 19th centuries at the 38th HAS Historical Association of Slovenia Assembly – ‘History of Education – Slovenia’. From the year 2000 until 2004 she lived in the Netherlands where she studied religion studies at the University of Amsterdam. Twelve years ago she moved back to Slovenia together with her husband. They have three children and are home educating their eldest child already for the seventh year. In order to provide information for parents who are deciding whether or not to homeschool their children she created a website where they can find basic information about homeschooling. Together with her sister we work to connect Slovene homeschooling parents; they organize monthly gatherings, where parents can share their experiences with homeschooling and give support to each other. Furthermore, they organize weekly gatherings for homeschooled children where they can learn and play together. Recently she self-published a book on homeschooling in Slovenia with the title ‘Where do you go to school?, wherein she shared her own experiences with homeschooling as well as experiences of other Slovene homeschooling parents. At the request of Slovene media, she presented homeschooling to the Slovene public several times during the last six years, on radio, television and in newspapers.
