It's very hard to bring oneself to link to the latest bit of Channel 4 rubbish supposedly about home ed, but actually clearly initiated in response to press releases from First College, an on-line school and therefore not about HE in the UK as we know it.
The on-line school angle leaves HE apparently wide open to the oldest redundant criticism you can imagine...the socialisation issue, which was left completely unanswered.
The telly nearly landed up in the garden, frankly. It's all so unjust: we spent that day in the company of some forty others of all ages, mixing with such an intensity of happiness and complexity that any school play ground situation would pale in the comparison.
And of course, there is no duty upon LEA's to visit all HEors. This is a misrepresentation of the law.
It is interesting that they got Chris Woodhead in on this piece with it's sex offender angle.
