Supporting lone parents who choose home education

Hi veronika, please would you include this link in your blog. There is only a short time left for people to sign it. It's to help lone parents on income support who home educate continue to do so. Once a child is 7 a parent is no longer entitled to income support and is moved onto jobseekers. This means many people won't have the option of home ed anymore.

I seem to remember this coming up as a debate in a group I'm in and many mothers believing that homeschooling is an "option" in other words, a WANT, not a NEED since there is public school available. *sigh* People just do not understand that some parents actually do have the need to have SOME control over what their child learns!
