...and on the timing of the Children, Schools and Families bill from another HE blogger here.
Firebird comments here. Mum of Six here, Tech here.
Other memoranda that were submitted to the Public Bill Committee by HEors and other organisations:
Pam and Terry Perryman
Action for Home Education
Autism in Mind
Dr Ben. Anderson
But herein lies the problem...ie: local government officials feeling the pinch of their interpretation of the law. The guidance on identifying children missing an education must be re-written to prevent government busybodies completely overriding parental responsibilities.
UPDATE: The Education Otherwise submission also explains that LA officials need to understand that s13a Education Act 1996 does not apply to home education.
