New Year's Resolutions

Well, this one's made very easy since someone else has already done most of the work. From Freedom for Children to Grow:

"Please Write To Your MP This Week

Every one of us can make a difference if we write to our MP before the Second Reading of the Children Schools and Families Bill on January 11th. The Government has tried to say that the new law is "about support" but this is categorically not the case and we need to put our MPs straight.

We have been told that if an MP receives three messages from different constituents on the same issue then it is a hot topic.

Read our new page explaining why now is a good time to write to your MP, with links to background information plus a sample letter for you to customise.

Also think about going to visit your MP. This is a chance to raise awareness of home education and to dispel prejudices and stereotypes. Your MP will also be much more motivated to speak in Parliament on behalf of home educators if he or she has actually met a home educating family. Read more here."
