High Court Judge rules he is of the opinion home educating a child is not in their best interests

Comment 9th July 2010

High Court Judge Mackie QC ruling dated 2 July, 2010 (Admin Court). In his ruling he makes it clear parents are unable to question and challenge failures of teachers when they fail in their "professional "duties to children. His rulling indicates the law that ensures us that our children must be educated up to their individual level of aptitude and ability by state schools is unenforceable in English Courts. He also makes it clear in his ruling parents should consider what is in the "best interests" of the child before children are home schooled. He obviously cannot comprehend the fact that people home school their children precisely because they think it is in their kids best interests. The ongoing High Court case is about the Arnewood School in New Milton teaching a year 9 pupil at a year 4 level, even despite their own assessments, and the fact that the pupil in question had surpassed the level they were teaching him at years ago at junior school, and the school knew it. Hence the parents decided to opt for home schooing. It's also about the school and authorities refusing to provde any explanation or reasons to parents in relation to their demands for answers. Type in "arnewood" in the search box to pull up more info. Full details of the case and ruling can be found on www.arnewoodschool.org.uk. Indeed a very scary development and insult for responsible parents who choose to home educate because they consider state schools don't come up to the standards they expect. What is equally an insult to us all is Mr. Michael Gove MP and his department agree with this postion! Now there's a "ponderance". 

Why does this matter?

Make sure our children are protected and the laws that are there to protect them are enforced. Even if this is an inconvenient truth, and flows contrary to the well oiled propoganda machine constantly bombarding us with nonsense. It you want a good reputation earn it with honesty and action, not hot air. We are all tired of that approach. Here's a great place to start.
