And then there was THIS :-(

1. Do you think the current system for safeguarding children who are
educated at home is adequate? Please let us know why you think that.

2. Do you think that home educated children are able to achieve the
following five Every Child Matters outcomes? Please let us know why you
think that.

3. Do you think that Government and local authorities have an obligation
to ensure that all children in this country are able to achieve the five
outcomes? If you answered yes, how do you think Government should
ensure this?. If you answered no, why do you think that?

4. Do you think there should be any changes made to the current system
for supporting home educating families? If you answered yes, what should
they be? If you answered no, why do you think that?

5. Do you think there should be any changes made to the current system
for monitoring home educating families? If you answered yes, what should
they be? If you answered no, why do you think that?

6. Some people have expressed concern that home education could be used
as a cover for child abuse, forced marriage, domestic servitude or other
forms of child neglect. What do you think Government should do to
ensure this does not happen?
