The House of Commons Library produces briefing notes for MPs and other interested parties, and has come up with a new paper on home education just before parliament closes down for the election period. I am guessing they may have done this because home education is a topical issue with backbench MPs being asked by constituents.
The 2015 Note is much shorter, as it only has a brief summary of the Badman recommendations and very little detail on the progress of the Children and Families Bill. With regard to the Badman Report, the 2010 Note has a slightly different wording for the reason why the Government asked Graham Badman to carry out the Review.
One of the most striking things for me is that the 2010 Note had more copying and pasting from the Government’s Elective Home Education Guidelines, whereas the 2015 Note opts to summarise the relevant content.
UPDATE MARCH 18TH, following an email to the House of Commons Library (see comments below this post) the relevant passage about the Education Committee Report has been corrected and it now says that most local authority websites WERE found to be ‘ultra vires’ rather than that they were not.
The 2015 Note has a new section on new special educational needs and disability legislation
