Likely most of you are aware of the recent meetings between the Attorney General and the NS Department of Education. For those of you who are not on Facebook (and frankly, sometimes I don't blame you) here are two links you may be interested in. The first is a link to the PDF outlining the full AG report published today. Chapter 2 concerns homeschooling specifically. Secondly is an article that will most likely be in the Herald tomorrow morning.
What does this mean for us? I don't know, maybe regular testing and more reporting? Regulations regarding funding? Mandatory curriculum? Whatever it means, we should all stay informed as it is our children's futures being discussed/planned/reviewed. It is up to you what steps you and your family would like to take next. Me? I am planning to write and phone my local MP. Stay in contact with the local homeschooling communities and submitting my thoughts when requested. I am planning to stay informed.
