An excellent riposte to the latest TES anti home education smear tactics
I have been accused of neglect
Poppycock. Balderdash. Home educators are *just* as subject to child protection procedures as the rest of the population. We can (and do) turn away educational officers who have no right to demand we produce a scheme of work or barge in to our houses. But we know perfectly well that social workers are a different kettle of fish altogether. And that neglect and abuse are overriding concerns, and that social workers have a right of access if that is the case. If the social worker doesn’t do something about it, to put it plainly, that is not my fault.
And I do not deserve to be tarred with this brush, repeatedly, at leisure, because of it.
Especially not by a Sun journalist in cahoots with an ill informed and/or blatantly biased editor.
