Bill Cash MP takes up plight of home educators with Secretary of State

Press release 30/11/09

In response to recent calls from constituents, who have submitted a petition to Bill Cash MP, Mr. Cash stated:
 
“I have received a petition from home educators within my constituency today and I have asked the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families, Ed Balls MP to respond to the serious concerns given in the petition.
 
“There are grave concerns over the recommendations of the Badman report, which suggests closer monitoring of home educators and interference of local authority officials in their homes, which is based on a rushed review.
 
“I urge the Government not to take forward these proposals in legislation. As the Shadow Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families already told the House of Commons, the Government's response to the Badman review unfortunately places many admirable home educators in the dock.”
