UK government to crack down on homeschooling to fight “extremism”

UK government to crack down on homeschooling to fight “extremism”, by Virginia Hale.

Parents who want to homeschool their children could be forced to register with local authorities and be made subject to inspection, according to a government report published Tuesday raising the prospect of prosecution for families which failed to comply.

Seeking views over the next 12 weeks with regards to strengthening regulation around homeschooling, the consultation was launched as part of the government’s “Counter-Extremism strategy to enable intervention in out of school settings”. …

Under the proposed regulatory system, any family taking their child out of mainstream schooling in the UK would have to explain their decision and demonstrate that children were being given an appropriate education at home.

If Britain was genuinely  concerned about the spread of “extremism,” it would crack down instead on madrassas and conduct surveillance on mosques. Instead, it is trampling the rights of Britons who are concerned about state indoctrination of their children with the “new” British value system, which is an odd combination of far-left and sharia values.

Britain already has over 85 sharia courts, and TheCityUK — which represents Britain’s banks and financial institutions — has already been urging the government to legally prioritize Islamic banking ahead of Brexit. The UK also intends to keep up the massive Muslim migrant influx post-Brexit.

Last year, a Jewish school was targeted for failing to adhere to the new British values:

a private Jewish school teaching girls up to the age of eight failed its third inspection for denying pupils “a full understanding of fundamental British values” by failing to teach about homosexuality and gender reassignment.

The UK will continue to trample upon the rights of its citizens as it cracks down on free speech and targets the right of Christian and Jewish parents to teach their children about personal values and freedoms — but it will continue to allow the increasing influence of the sharia.

Tens of Christian schools have been downgraded as a result of the new rules…Education Secretary Nicky Morgan…claimed such schools deny children “the opportunity to flourish in a modern multicultural Britain”.
