According to the UK Independence Party website UKIP will try to achieve the following if they gain power at the 2010 general election:
UKIP will work to:
1) Ensure that parents remain responsible for the upbringing and education of their
children within or without formal schooling.
2) Fight against current and proposed policies and legislation which may affect the
rights and freedoms of families who choose home education.
3) Support the right to fair and equal treatment for those who choose independent,
elective home based learning for their children.
The UK Independence Party in 2007 stated that it is fully behind the principle of
Elective Home Education: “We will nonetheless guarantee that those wishing to educate their children at home will still have this option available to them”.
I would be interested to hear both positive and negative views on UK Independence Party’s Home Education policies in the comments below?
