The Times has that right.
And an article on the implications of the Badman proposals in the Economist which concludes:
"Local-authority officers would have the right to enter a home where a child is being taught and quiz him in his parents’ absence. Permission to home-school could be denied if inspectors decided a child’s safety was in danger. In a handful of cases, that will be the right decision, but for the overwhelming majority of parents, this is bullying bureaucracy at its worst. Mr Balls clearly believes the nanny state knows best.
