Joy Baker was a 1950s mother who fought hard for the right to home educate her children. A Video of Joy Baker facing a hostile interview in 1960.

The authorities fought back and treated her family barbarically, eventually removing her children. Thankfully, such over reaction is not acceptable today, but had she not fought for the right or had she lost, it's unlikely that home education would remain an option today.
