Give Back the Reins

Ann Newstead, of Freedom for Children to Grow had this to say in response to Simon Heffer's article about how the state first undermines the role of parents and then seeks to replace them:

"... the Government seems intent on interfering in the few rights we (parents) have. The legal right to home educate in England is one that many of us value above all else - it enables us to provide our children with an education suitable to their age, ability and aptitude (as per the Education Act) in a far greater way than any school is able to do. Even the Government's commissioned report - 2020 Vision - recognises that personalised learning wins hands down over the mass, one size fits all, system currently employed by the state."
