Problems with Negotiations with Local Authorities

From Brighton and Hove HEors:

"We are forced to conclude that the reference group is nothing but a smokescreen, intended to give the impression that this policy is based on consultation with home educators."

Sadly Brighton's HEors are not the only ones to have experienced the smokescreen effect of apparent negotiations with LAs and it does indeed seem as if a number of LAs require more than a gentle hand to help them understand that they are acting illegally. Perhaps it's time that EO and AHEd step into the breach in the way that Schoolhouse does in Scotland.
