home-schooling has many benefits, especially for bullied children

Sonia Sodha goes too far in her article: “Is the state sometimes wiser than the parents?” (Commentary). The ban on home education is proposed and suggests that “some may have an adequate education – we do not know.” But we know because there has not been much research showing that this type of education is largely due very effectively.

Government research has shown that every year at least 10,000 children have worse outcomes at GCSE, simply because they are born in the summer. These young people are also less likely to go to college and more likely to be bullied at school.

We know that more than a quarter of children are bullied in their school life. You can be a smart parent who decides on an alternative school instead of sending your child every day to be beaten. In fact, research on children who have had traumatic experiences, such as bullying, are three times more likely to have psychotic episodes in adulthood.

I am pleased that the law is not paternal.

Feminism has many faces
As a feminist man many years of activity, arguing the case at meetings, writing about the subject, playing plays, articles and letters to the media, I am disappointed by Catherine Bennett’s seemingly anodyne rejection of my perseverance and effort “The extreme need This makes a man a woman of the year,” comment).

My anger and my conviction on the issue of equality, the disgusting treatment of women through the centuries and even today, and my certainty that no society can be civilized until it is out of fashion that the philosophy of This company is as strong and deeply feminized as shamefully masculinized for centuries are by no means inferior to a woman’s. However, I do not pretend to claim the best way to continue as a woman, what must be changed or what wants to be feminine in our society. A woman knows. And I also know, because my feminism is as valid as any person, man or woman.home-schooling has many benefits, especially for bullied children
