The Common Assessment Framework

John Clare of Telegraph fame, lays into the Common Assessment Framework (CAF), the detailed questionnaire/assessment form that all agencies will be using to assess any child who doesn't match up to their precious five targets: enjoying and achieving, staying healthy, staying safe, achieving economic well being and making a positive contribution.

Many home educators may well be thinking "we told you so" and "why has it taken everyone else so long to wake up to the intrusive, unnecessary and expensive waste that this will be?" but I guess the best we can really do is keep shouting and hoping that this rearguard action will make a difference.
