Why some Muslim parents home-school

As figures show home education is becoming more popular in the UK, BBC Asian Network has had access to an online community of Muslim parents who home-school their children.

The parents say they have taken their children out of school for a number of reasons, from the standard of education, to frustration with the government's anti-extremism strategy, Prevent.

The government says it is looking at strategies to make the system as "robust" as possible amid concerns children could be radicalised or fall off the radar.
