Mike's Home Education Journal

Mike Fortune Wood's Home Education Journal arrived in the post yesterday. I cannot recommend it highly enough. One article alone, "Can children's rights be a bad thing?" by Mike himself would make it worth the cover price and will certainly be informing my response to the DfES consultation on Elective Home Education - (further draft responses added here.)

Fiona Nicholson gives us an EO local contact insider's view of deregistration from school, revealing the motivations underpinning the school's actions - which of course has next to nothing to do with the welfare or educational needs of a child. (So much for taking children's views into account!)
