Home education is safe

Letter to Children & Young People Now, 12 February 2009

The NSPCC has welcomed the latest home education review, echoing government allegations that home education could be used as a "cover for abuse".

No evidence or statistics have been produced to substantiate these accusations.


But it's not just the home educating parents who are being bullied by the government:

"Figures show a parent is sent to prison every other week in term time for failing to ensure their child goes to school"

It's all such a farce, isn't it? So many problems to address in schools, but they'd rather spend their time making up new problems instead.
