Another petition worth signing in support of home educators in Wales.

Petition against Welsh Draft Non-statutory Guidance for Local Authorities on Elective Home Education

In May 2014 the Welsh Assembly Government Minister for Education announced that new non-statutory guidelines would be drawn up for Elective Home Education, following consultation with home educating families.

Draft guidelines have been published for consultation which do not reflect the previously strongly stated views of those home educating families.

We believe that these draft guidelines are poorly written, misleading and likely to lead to further breakdown in relationships between home educating families and Local Authorities.

We call upon the Welsh Assembly Government to retract the draft guidelines as not being fit for purpose.

Instead local authorities should work towards demonstrating their knowledge of the existing law on home education, and adhere to the existing, clearly defined guidelines.
Amen to that.
 
You're right, and this is after the con-sultation, or should it be insultation?

Makes my blood boil, very few schools in Wales are fit for purpose, so what do they do? Go after Home Educators!

Because that's going to improve education in schools so much.

All I can think, is that somehow, Home Educators are showing up the schools for what they are :peep:

It's so frustrating, they ignore problems that are there and go looking for ones that aren't! Across the board, we're having terrible hassles in all areas at the minute, there just seems to be a massive public sector drive to make everyone's head explode :smash:
 
It's a massive "Look over there!" exercise.

Schools fail on bullying, education, socialisation (unless you understand socialisation in the sociological sense, then they are doing a fair job) preparation for working life - there's a long list of failing.

And of course there's a lot of money being thrown at failing schools - with little or no evidence of improvement.
