Carlotta, at the blog “Dare to Know,” reports on the Cheshire county council:
The Problems with Calls for Tougher Home Education Guidelines, 3 October 2007
Take Cheshire County Council by way of an example. Cheshire CC has issued a press release which comes with the tagline:
“Cheshire Calls For Tougher Guidelines Concerning Home Education”
My favorite part of Carlotta’s commentary is:
Then again, if the state really is going to require HE kids to be consulted and taken seriously by council employers about their needs and aspirations, then surely it is only fair to do it for schooled kids? Yep, if the state does go down this route, then we will demand parity. CC’s everywhere will need to introduce a council policy which requires that they take all children’s needs and aspirations seriously, (not just HE children.)
Good luck to Carlotta and other U.K. home edders.
