The BBC is a strange organisation that seems almost allergic to telling the truth.
Now they seem to be out to get home schoolers. Our kids are apparently missing. There is a petition set up to ask the BBC to change the wording of their ridiculous article. Surely journalists know enough about the law to know that children do not have to be registered with a local authority. Quite frankly with this kind of weird propaganda going on it is hardly any wonder that so many homeschooling parents choose not to register their children.
Mine are registered, simply because I pulled them out of school, and I am fortunate enough to live in an area where the LA seems pretty supportive of home education, but many parents are up against bullying and just plain ignorance from those who are supposed to know better.
It seems to me that if the BBC want to get people to 'have [their] say' it would be better asking about the failure of schools to offer a reasonable, let alone safe, education for our children.- But that doesn't seem to be on the agenda for some reason.
