Link to a handy new summary, printable on A4.
Some cool people have produced a summary of current UK law on EHE. It’s four sides of A4; the first two are designed for handing to people who don’t know the law, the rest is a discussion of key points. Covers the Local Authority’s rights, truancy laws etc.
I had nothing to do with creating this summary, but I think it’s a very good idea, so I’ve offered to host a PDF on my web site for people to download. You can get it here:
And if you want to include that link on your own web site, here’s the HTML to paste in:
<a href="http://www.uncharted-worlds.org/education/ElectiveHomeEducationLaw200912.pdf">Elective Home Education Law (PDF, 95k)</a>
Good places to keep a copy include
- by your front door in case you get “doorstepped” by an official person
- by the phone
- in your bag/pocket/wallet when out and about.
You might also like to print out a few extras to give to friends without internet access (or without a printer).
Respect & thanks to Jill for being the prime mover behind this.
