please read the whole of this email as it contains important information for every home educator, information that some may not be aware of.
We are currently facing the biggest threat there has ever been to home education and everything could hinge on this current consultation which ends on this Monday 19th Oct. I cannot stress just how important it is that these proposals are defeated because they are planning much more than registration.
Hot on the heels of this consultation they intend to consult on the definition of what constitutes a suitable education. First they intend to hog tie us with compulsory registration, inspections and annual licensing to home educate and then they intend to determine the content of our home education.
Here is a link to the announcement that they are planning a consultation on suitable education.
Please do fill out the consultation on home education and enourage friends and family to do so too. Even if you think the consultation has pre determined outcomes you have nothing to lose. You do not have to write a lengthy response to each question, you can answer a simple no or yes.
Here is a link to the current consultation. Please note it ends very soon.
Please feel free to cross post this email to other home educators and groups, but please remove my personal details/email address first. Thanks for reading
