Really, home educators should stand on the naughty step

Home educators are being told off by the DCSF.

You see, some naughty home educators have been finding out information. Like statistics that show up the low rate of child abuse in home educating families, and the potential for malicious referrals from the neighbour who doesn't approve.

Oh dear. This does not fit with the approved storyline at all. Now the DCSF are very upset and may withhold any more statistics to stop those home educators piecing it all together. They say this is because a few very naughty individuals are being silly and rude about Mr Balls and making Mr Badman upset. When we all agree they are honest gents about their business.

So today Grit's blog will be filled with pictures of kittens.

OK, I haven't got any pictures of kittens, but you can bet that if I had some today, just for the DCSF, Mr Balls and Mr Badman, they would be cute.

I have some pictures from the anal museum instead.

Yes, you read that right.

On the road signpost to Stoke Bruerne anal museum someone persists in removing the letter C. They've been doing it for as long as I can remember. I think it demonstrates literacy in action. You might say you just can't stop some people taking the piss.

And here are my home educated children, for whom this blog truly exists, so they can show all of you what a fantastic time they have learning at Blisworth tunnel and the anal museum - from the big group of home educated children they know and run around with, from the old man who let them all help push the lock gates open, from the enthusiastic education officer, the supportive museum staff, and their own wit and wisdom, exploring the real world.

Over to you, gritlets.

Bad, very bad. No respect for (the so-called) authority, misuse of intelligence (checking out Gov't stats is NOT on the HE curriculum) and downright willfulness! You may have to live on the naughty step.

sharon, it is a very crowded step!

I don't see why we can't check out the stats - afterall, understanding stats happens at mid-senior school level doesn't it - so we're just trying to teach our our kids using every day available info?!!

Had to laugh about the anal museum - I needed a laugh, have been feeling grumpy all day. Cheers!
