Every child a voice and a choice

"The Special Minister for Elective Home Education agrees with Mr Badman that every child should have a voice and a choice, and therefore strongly recommends that all children of school age will be given the right to visit their LA at least once a year - accompanied by whoever they feel is appropriate accompaniment - to state their preferred form of education."

Does the Minister think that it would be appropriate to appoint a Commissioner for Electively Home Educated Children? We can do this from within our existing funds.

Quoting the Minister here: "But... Susanna! Are you suggesting that the (upcoming) Commissioner for Children is not representing ALL children? Surely that can't be the case *shock, horror*! You and I, as Ministers of EHE certainly need to look into this matter and report on it, asap!"

Susanna said...

With respect, Minister, she quoted a serious case of abuse as an example of EHE, bringing the community into instant disrepute. Do you think she is a candidate who will remain balanced and impartial?

I must say, Minister, I am very pleased that I now have a choice and a voice. Thank you, Mr Badman.

Mieke said...

LOL Archie! The secret - that we will make sure will no longer remain a secret - is that you had a choice and a voice already! It just took a little while before Mr Badman realised it, and I'm afraid he still hasn't grasped it entirely. But we will patiently persevere :)

So, since you all are in England, is this, like, a magical ministry of education? I just hope you all aren't about to get killed by Ba... I mean, you know who.

Mieke said...

Don't worry, Kelly. We have powers that are unknown to The Dark One :)

Maire said...

Would that include the ability to detect the difference between truth and lies minister?

Mieke said...

It is enough to know the truth, dear Maire. The rest is just a waste of time :)
