Inquiry into the DCSF-commissioned review of elective home education

Leave a comment if you want me to tell you what's in the email - it's one of those "don't pass this on" official ones and I am anxious to do things by the book :-)

They say:

"The Children, Schools and Families Committee is to undertake a short inquiry into the recent review of elective home education commissioned by the Department for Children, Schools and Families. The Committee invites written submissions on:
* the conduct of the review and related consultations (e.g. the constitution of the review team; the scope of the terms of reference for the review; and the nature of the consultation documents).
* the recommendations made by the review on elective home education.

The Committee asks for written submissions in accordance with the guidelines ... by noon on Tuesday 22 September 2009.

Please note

A copy of the submission should be sent by e-mail to and marked "Elective Home Education Inquiry". The Committee's strong preference is for submissions in electronic form, although hard copy originals will be accepted and should be sent to... (blah blah)"

So we each have 3,000 words to pull apart the process and the findings :-D
