Green Party members are conducting a poll of home educating parents regarding the party's proposed new policy on EHE and we have been asked to publicise it.

They write:

We are attempting to improve the Green Party home ed policy and are going to a conference next weekend to argue for a change in policy. This is our poll https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1b6at9bfkT6qthdwr2JpsKXUZUJ57lPa7Z0hYjQ9jnoI/viewform?usp=send_form and the more it is spread the better!!! thank you in advance.

Where parents still choose to educate their children at home this would be supported by Local Authorities which would work to ensure that all young people have a broad and diverse education of a high quality
Bear in mind that we, the Green Party, know what's best for your child and have decided what type of education your child needs. We will support you till those goals are achieved.

Your support will come through the LA. You will avail of this support. At no time will you deviate from the support, take support anywhere else or try to manage without the support. If the support offered is hampering your ability to deliver a good education ...more support will be provided.


Let's hope the poll has convinced the Greens to make some changes.

Any ideas if there has been a change in party policy on home education?

I will be disappointed if there hasn't been any changes or if the reds / pro-school faction win and the policy becomes even more bossy and statist than before.

IMO home educators could have made more effort over the years to lobby the Green Party and get their points across to them as to the sort of policy they want. Labour has prejudices towards HE but there have been suspicions that lack of understanding of HE is the bigger problem in the Green Party.

The Green Party has been renamed the Yellow Party in Scotland after nodding through the most illiberal piece of legislation in a generation. There is absolutely no hope for them.

As if on cue, the latest from Alice to remind us of the origins and purpose of the green agenda.

We can reflect back to the Club of Rome (think tank for the UN) and their 1991 book The First Global Revolution:

"In searching for a common enemy against whom we can unite, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like, would fit the bill. In their totality and their interactions these phenomena do constitute a common threat which must be confronted by everyone together. But in designating these dangers as the enemy, we fall into the trap, which we have already warned readers about, namely mistaking symptoms for causes. All these dangers are caused by human intervention in natural processes, and it is only through changed attitudes and behaviour that they can be overcome. The real enemy then is humanity itself."

The Scottish Green Party is a separate and independent institution to the Green Party of England and Wales. Therefore changes to the home education policy following the Autumn conference will only affect HE families in England and Wales.

There is absolutely no hope for them.
Take into account that the Scottish Green Party has to live in the shadow of the SNP. In England the Green Party doesn't really have any competition in the radical or centre left or separatist spheres. The English Democrats are very underdeveloped compared with the SNP.

This also explains why Green Party policy tends to be more important to HE in England than in Scotland.
