It’s so nice, and so rare, to see a government have an outburst of common sense, that one must note the occasion. Today the BBC reported that the English Department for Education and Skills is set to issue guidelines which “point out that it is fundamental to the English system that the responsibility for educating children rests on the parents.”
Parents will be told that “education is compulsory but schooling is not.”
Some USA states haven’t learned that yet. Bravo to the English bureaucracy!
