A combination of a comment added to this post, and calls to boost the promotion of this petition has led me to think this blogroll might be good plan - it equally might not, but nothing ventured nothing gained - please spread the word and get as many home education blogs on this roll as possible, both to show that we are keeping on keeping on, and that we will continue to defend our rights.
Please scroll down for the blogroll :)

Feeling cautiously optimistic

To be honest I have felt like everything has been in a somewhat precarious limbo since the CSF Bill went to the Lords. It's all gone a bit quiet, but that doesn't mean it's gone away. However, reading this today in the TES gives us some hope (I hope!)

"Central elements of unpopular Bill likely to be shelved in pre-poll ‘wash-up’"
"Vast swathes of the unpopular Children, Schools and Families Bill, currently being debated in the House of Lords, will be scrapped as the Bill is forced into law ahead of the general election, which is expected to be called next week."

"Also in line for the axe are most of the pupil and parent guarantees, such as a “right to PE”, as well as reforms to rules on home education, which would have required home educators to register their children with the local authority."
