Wendy Charles Warner, Education Otherwise representative in Wales has posted an update on the EO website about handing over the petition to the Welsh Assembly Government and also meeting with Assembly Members responsible for education
e-Petition: Opposing compulsory registration for home educating children. We call upon the Welsh Assembly for Wales to abandon plans for a compulsory register for home educated children as part of the draft Education (Wales) Bill.
The law states that parents, not the state, are responsible for the education of their children, which makes such a register both inappropriate and unnecessary.
The petition closes tomorrow so you still have time to sign it (even if you don't live in Wales). There are currently 1540 signatures. Please sign now.
