French Home Educators' badly needing our help!

Approx translation:  

"We want to get the complete abandonment of the legislation which proposes to limit the option of home education to cases of disability.

Home education in France is legal and is a free choice that belongs to parents.  It is a constitutional freedom which is enshrined in the European Convention on Human Rights and the Convention on the Rights of the Child.

The bill also aims to reduce individual freedoms of everyone and is an attack on families in their choice of life. We must strongly oppose this in order to continue to choose the best for our children.

Sign this petition now and show governments how far we've come in taking on responsibility for education!!

On which point, this book is great on the efficacy of autonomous learning for a great life and a great career:
