Suitable Education

There is no definition of suitable, not the detailed chronological achievement linked definition that those who think all parents are unsafe to do the best for their kids would like. They don't dare because again it would apply to schools also, many of which are self evidently not providing a suitable education to many children and certainly not one suitable "(a) to his age, ability and aptitude, and
(b) to any special educational needs he may have" It would be very difficult for an LA bod to judge and they actually have no power to do so. They do not know the aptitude or needs of the child. And the norm is a prejudice towards education that looks like school and most home education doesn't and is all the more successful for it.

If they had a proactive duty to ensure they could be sued  by all the children and parents they let down. It would be difficult to do so because education is a parental duty and parents who send their child to unsuitable schools are breaking the law. Odd that there is no call to prosecute them though as they are by definition likely to be in far greater number.
