An odd way round to do it 🙁
Even if you don’t agree with Home Educating and you think my children deserve better than to be locked up at home all day, please read this then read this letter and then ask yourself if scrabbling for evidence after the event smacks a little of the WMD embarrassment?
In what profession is it acceptable to produce a report for the government on which legislation will be passed and lives changed and ruined – and then when challenged (and you can no longer hide behind pretending people are being mean to you by questioning your methods – how rude!) then you have to go and ask for data to strengthen your case, because your sample was too small (and also self selecting).
Just in case your children ever need the right to safety, even though you don’t believe it could happen right now, consider signing this petition and supporting Home Educators, against whom there is NO EVIDENCE of the suggested abuse, enforced marriage or domestic servitude.
Ask yourself if we want the freedom to parent/educate according to need (not according to the state) to be taken away from us?
Please do it – even if you never comment and aren’t even sure home educating is even the way forward. Do it just in case there comes a day when you are at your wits end for them. Or in case there comes a day when you know that tomorrow might be their last if they have to go back there. Or in case suddenly one of you is soon to not be in this world any more and you want the right to spend your last months as a family.
Or in case suddenly, just suddenly, the world opens up and you want to spend your time with your beautiful, wonderful children, blowing bubbles in the park with the sun on your face, dancing in the fountains and enjoying the sound of life going on around you.
