Persecution of a minority group

"Outraged families and support organisations flood the DCFS with 2000+ consultation responses to the elective home education review.

The government's review of elective home education, which was announced in January in a blaze of scurrilous spin stating that home education could be used by parents as a cover for abuse and forced marriage, has provoked an unparalleled reaction from home educating families and support organisations, including home education action group AHEd and the home educators' network Home Education Forums. Both AHEd and Home Ed Forums have strongly rebutted the government's allegations as "vile and unsubstantiated" in their respective robust responses to the DCSF consultation."
