Grit I'd put you up against a solicitor/college professor any day because you have the passion of a mama lion for home education and the knowledge of why it's a good idea. Don't back down. How does one become a baroness anyway?

She has a journalist daughter and a journalist/historian father so I bet she's into doing mad research. I wonder if you could find her at her law professor job and talk openly about home education? Her specialty is family relationships and the law. It would be quite a coup to get her on your side. I only know this from Wikipedia, hope I have the right Baroness!

like you, i have had far more positive than negative comments in sum, mmesg. i worry that badman / deech / bbc will give a voice to those who are suspicious about HE but can't articulate a coherent argument. post ishaq coverage i'm expecting people to come out with ill-founded incoherent resentments dressed up as 'for the good of the children'. anyway, no-one has taken me on in the street face-to-face yet. that's the strength and courage of my argument. or maybe it's just the sight of my tattoos and my pitbull.

sharon, you can guess i would love that, because i am a hippie, just one in denial. Dig would never do it because he is a lilly livered sissy who likes to live with a gas powered rotating office chair, and you can't fit one of those in a motorhome.

aw, bigmammafrog, you are right there. some little people do not survive in the school environment and yeah, i will give encouragement on home ed if folks come seeking it.

hi retired&crazy! you are one strong lady. can you buy pox in a box for easy posting?

You sound a tad bit mad. Good for you and a pox on Baroness Deech and her PC kind.

Yeah, I've met very few people who are openly aggressively against home education (to date one headmaster and a couple of childminders). I've met plenty who are ignorant, some who are prejudiced but tolerable, and many who dismiss it as something crazy to ignore, but are otherwise harmless.

But the ones I am always touched by are those who are ready, who are at that place, where they sense something is wrong with the system and are genuinely interested in hearing about an alternative. There aren't many of them, but when you meet them you come away feeling like you may just have made a difference to someone's life.

Buy a motorhome then you can travel around the country at whim and defy any Government Nazi to track you down!

I know ONE person who was against us home educating. Plenty who thought (probably still think) we're 'MAD'. Most say things like 'You're so brave' (which is the same as the ones who think we're MAD but more polite). And everyone we've met since who's asked the usual 'No school today then?' has finished the conversation with well-wishes or wishes that 'my daughter/grand-daughter' etc would do the same. All 'normal' lovely everyday people from all walks (scum like me to super-posh) - all perfectly cheery and supportive.

Where do these Daily Mail types actually come from? What's with this mental Deech bint?

Our one person who was against us does not even speak to us anymore (although more to do with not getting her own way about something related to Himself's work) but this suggests to me a lack of 'social' intelligence on her part. She used to be a teacher. Her beautiful daughter was seriously anorexic during her A-levels. Who's the MAD one?
