Setting a Better Example
Despite the relatively benign Elective Home Education Guidelines which came out in Nov 2007, the majority of LA websites continue to make claims for powers which are over and beyond the law, particularly with regard to home visits and the absolute need for the LA both to know about HE provision and to be satisfied that an education is being provided.
