The Independent features an article on the Education Secretary Nicky Morgan who has ordered a review into home schooling. Under Government proposals being considered, parents and teachers will be given a specific point of contact at local councils in order to raise concerns about a child.

The opportunity to keep children safe is paramount, and reviewing the process is welcomed. There are fears of operational malpractice teaching and home schooling can be missed by officials in closed settings. 

Officials will attempt to find how many children are being taught currently at home, beyond the reach of inspectors. 

The question of formalising a register may cause resistance within the Conservative Party, as quoted in the article by MP Graham Stuart, who chairs the all-party parliamentary group on home education,“the legal duty to educate a child rests with the parents not the state. That is a long-standing settlement in this country.”
