P-04-437 : Opposing compulsory registration for home educating children

Petition wording:

We call upon the Welsh Assembly for Wales to abandon plans for a compulsory register for home educated children as part of the draft Education (Wales) Bill.  The law states that parents, not the state, are responsible for the education of their children, which makes such a register both inappropriate and unnecessary.
