...to get those consultation responses in.
Closing Date: Monday 19 October 2009!!!!!
Mr Badman reported in the Select Committee hearing that he knows the names of the tiny minority of home educators who object to his report. Given that I personally know at least 100 families who object to his proposals, and only 3 of these went to the lobby, and given that there were over 450 people there, I was impressed. He must know a lot of names!
Let's see if his memory for names is almost world-beating! Let's see just how many consultation responses we can lodge objecting to his proposals. At the moment there are well over 2,100 from different people, and quite a few from different organisations representing numerous people. Many of these responses object strongly to most, if not all, of his proposals.
Perhaps Badman is consulting an expert in mnemonics or perhaps he is exaggerating his abilities, or could it be, just could it be that he wants to underplay the size, severity and utter reasonableness of our objections to his proposals?
My updated response and links to other responses here. It is perfectly acceptable (if not preferable) to write a much smaller response than mine!
