Home Education has always been on my list of options for my boys.  Although I opted for Lewes New School in the end (which is fab) it’s still on my list…just not now, got too much on my plate at the moment.

I’m not shy in saying that I think the educational system here mostly sucks.  Of course that is my opinion and I don’t mind if you disagree.

However, there’s a bit of an uproar at the moment.  A government report has come out stating that all families that home educate must register annually.  This report has been in the pipeline for a while and  originally stigmatised the home education community by saying it was to investigate how home education could be used as a cover up to child abuse.

Rather than explaining it, if you are interested there is an article on the topic with plenty of comments.  There’s also a Facebook group.
