Amazing! the ability to time projectile vomit to the minute. You've got to take your hat off to them.

As a rule we don't link to EO sites from here as EOcentricity has no place in home education discussions.

Try these instead:

Her point, or so it seemed to me, was that, while most would seem to agree that her children were clearly well-educated she probably wouldn't be able to satisfy an 'inspector' because they don't do much writing or keep records.

I often wonder why anyone bothers with the EBC. This did home educators no favours whatsoever, but then EO never does.

It seems to me, in effect, after a shufti through the cr... er report that the government is now responsible for home education therefore the LAs are liable for all our claims for our educational needs. We should be pointing out that we want our pay, and every other perk school gets (until they decide that it will be cheaper to turn German and outlaw home education which, I think, has just moved a step closer).

Hurrah for Becta which will be awarded the monumental funding that it will take to upgrade all us mountin' dwellin' compu'er illit'erates. Another of the agent's recommendations...

Of course, the totally morally bankrupt, lying scumbags who are the NSPCC have a place on the podium.

And autonomous education receives a lovely put-down. Because you cannot weigh it and measure it, I guess.

P.S. Don't forget to contribute to the government's latest money-wasting exercise - the consultation, already up, how efficient. Even more efficient since they've written the pre-formed responses themselves.

Anyone for blowing up Parliament?

To answer my own question, I guess this bit in part 1 of the recommendations:

At the time of registration parents/carers/guardians must provide a clear statement of
their educational approach, intent and desired/planned outcomes for the child over the
following twelve months.

Maybe they have been promised a Czarship.
EO must have known about the recommendations when they sent in their proposition for a HEC.
