Thank you very much for this. I think it is very important that knowledgeable
members of the home educating community are involved in the creation of the new
guidelines, rather than the minister (or more likely his staff) electing to use only
home educators local to Cardiff for convenience.
As Welsh liaison for Education Otherwise, the largest home educating charity in the
UK and author of the briefing paper used during the consultations, I am anxious
that I should be involved from the very start in all aspects of the new guidelines.
I would be very grateful if the committee felt able to recommend that my
involvement is accepted from day one.
