From The Home Educated Youth Council (HEYC)
"Following the launch of the Consultation, home educated children who felt that their voices had not been heard during the Review and who continued to feel that they were not being consulted, formed the Home Educated Youth Council (HEYC). To challenge the DCSF’s assumption that home educated childrens’ opinions are influenced by their parents, HEYC wishes to speak face to face with DCSF officials without parents present, and have therefore been seeking an appointment with the DCSF since the group’s formation."
They've set a date: 12th August.
