home educated children

Comment 6th July 2010

home educated children are not necessarily known to the LA. Home educators are not regulated in the same way as a school. Home educators, on the whole, are good people who work hard to ensure their children receive a good education. However sometimes the home educator may not have the good of the child at the heart of why they are home educating. Sometimes they home educate so that abusive relationships can go undetected – in these circumstances children can suffer terribly – this cannot be allowed to continue.

My idea is that home educators should receive the same formula funding as all other school aged children in their local area. For that home educators come under the same scrutiny and accountability as all other education institutions.

Why does this matter?

it is a way of safeguarding very vulnerable children and gives fair funding to home educators
