Recommendation 7 is a real humdinger.
Ed balls letter to Badman: http://www.freedomforchildrentogrow.org/Ed%20Balls%20to%20Graham%20Badman%20110609.pdf
We will find a way to make these recommendations work if they are put in place (and it sounds like Ball is determined to do so), the HE community is rescourceful... but at this moment, I feel like crying, and I can't help wondering how autonmonous learning will be possible when yearly statements with clear outcomes and acheivements have to given to the LEA and the LEA will have the right to inspect and see our children alone and expect to see they have achieved the goals set.
I am particularly worried by the recommendatin that if there are any safeguarding concerns then the parents will not be allowed to HE and how that could so easily be abused by authorities.
I feel sick, frankly.
The consultation on the registration and monitoring is up already. It's ot particularly arduous, so I do encoourage you to rspond.
