Just after receiving confirmation that the Welsh Assembly has dropped plans to legislate to bring in compulsory registration of Welsh Home Educators and that any new guidance will be non-statutory, (YIPPEE), we hear that Northern Irish HEors are now in the firing line for new statutory guidance.
Same old, same old. Yup, the same old arguments must be recycled, it seems! When will the ptb realise that
Access to the home without suspicion of wrongdoing
Access to the child
Control over deregistration from schools
Restrictions on how and what children should learn
altogether over-ride the principle of parental responsibility for education, and that should the ptb decide to make our decisions for us, we will come for them when they screw up?
Graham Stuart MP (head of the Education Select Committee) has already tried to explain why it is a bad idea, but all help will be gratefully received.
