Shrunken Balls!


For those who haven't yet heard... the government has been forced to drop the Home Education parts of the CSF Bill (and many other un-popular bits)... which means that PROVIDED NuLiebour DO NOT win the upcoming election, home educating families are to be safe from licensing & tyrannical legislation (for a while at least).

This does not however mean that the war is been won, merely THIS battle.

Whilst we all desire to return to the crucial priority of providing our children with the best education possible & to put behind us the horror that has been the Balls saga, it would be a terrible mistake to let down our guard, or put aside the lessons hard learned, networks woven & knowledge accrued since the 'Badman' report & the governments ensuing dirty tricks campaign.

Even if the next government does not stage such an underhand & uncompromising attack as the last one has, the recent fight to protect home education has awakened many of us to the ridiculous stereotyping & misinformation which persists in the media, political & public arenas, about this issue.
In addition, much of the home education community has become more politically aware, opinionated & active, thanks to having seen the process at such close & personal quarters.

We must continue to keep our eyes open & our thinking clear & not lose contact with the process or one another. When and if the next battle is upon us, we must be mindful not only of what has gone before but also that we aren't the only ones who have learned lessons...

KEEP ON SAYING NO TO STATE INTERFERENCE & INDOCTRINATION!
KEEP ON  FIGHTING THE GOOD FIGHT!! 
KEEP ON LEARNING LIBERTY!!!
