Lords Second Reading happening today.
"The first essential step is to put a duty on local education authorities to create a register of all children out of school. My Private Member’s Bill, which gets its Lords Second Reading on Friday, will put a duty on councils to visit the family and child. This duty should not be seen as negative, as the idea is to offer help where it is needed. Nor is it meant as a prescriptive instruction to home educating parents but rather a way of ensuring the child is receiving an education, safe and not being ill-treated or radicalised." (Lord Soley)
