Home Educators are very scared of any suggestion that social workers should be allowed to use the fact of home education as a prime facie reason to demand entrance to the home to inspect the kids. It appears they may well be right to feel this way. First we heard of Prof. Southall's diagnosis of Munchausen's by Proxy by TV (he saw mum talking on a TV programme and diagnosed her that way - she very nearly lost her kids permanently until her estranged husband admitted he had poisoned the dogs) and now we hear this sort of story from the BBC.
"The MPs fear a rise in the number of young children being taken into care in England and Wales is linked to pressure on councils to increase adoption rates. Lib Dem MP John Hemming, who has tabled a Commons motion on the issue, said it was a "national scandal". "
Looks like we may need to enlist the likes of John Hemming, MP since surprisingly enough, we don't want the SS knocking on our doors pinching our very nice and easy to adopt kids, thank you very much.
