Home Education Petition Record

Yesterday’s home education petition handover was a record. To read the Sky News report click here. According to Sky News: Mr Stuart (Beverley and Holderness) told MPs: “If enacted, the Government’s proposals will for the first time in our history tear away from parents and give to the state the responsibility for a child’s education.”

These issues are clearly a matter of concern for all of us, whether or not we home educate.

Jemmo contacted this blog via the comments box and said:

 “Someone has done some counting:117 Petitions were presented tonight, of which 55 presenting MPs gave the total signature count

The grand total was 2052 signatures from just those 55 petitions. And there are plenty more to come!”
