Balls's plans for home education should be scaled back
"Ed Balls's plans to monitor home-educating families were "too aggressive", based on "less than robust" evidence and should be scaled back, according to a powerful committee of MPs.
"Government reforms that would see all home-educating families forced to register their child and accept annual visits from local authority inspectors were "too hard-nosed" and should be made voluntary, the chair of the children, schools and families select committee said. The proposals have been deeply controversial among home-educating families, with petitions and demonstrations to parliament."
