Ok maybe we have to still keep up our guard, continue to educate people and promote home ed but I think we very much deserve to celebrate.
So lets all Engish and Welsh home educators raise our glasses tonight at nine thirty and congratulate ourselves and fellow home edders for a fantastic result. Of course we have to thank our supporters in Scotland and Canada and elsewhere and hope they and any and all home educators will join us. Please could you share a photo here so we can all share each others celebrations.
The first indication that all would be well came with a notification of amendments to the Children Schools and Families Bill, the second when Ed published his open letter to Michael Gove. Then the conservatives published it and finally the DCSF themselves.
We are of course very happy that Ed isn't and I expect the other parties are delighted with this piece of propaganda on their behalf, so generous!
So cheers me dears, , the fat lady hath sungeth and the balls bill has shrunk in the wash up, for sure, oh happy day. Tonight we celebrate. Woo hoo! Woo hoo!
