Roland Meighan Response to Review Report
Roland Meighan has just made public his personal response to Graham Badman’s Review Report.
Roland’s “creditials” are impressive and he could arguably truly be called an “expert” in education and home education:

D.Soc.Sc, Ph.D., B.Sc.(Soc)., L.C.P.., Cert. Ed., he is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts, Writer, publisher, and consultant/research er on learning systems, past present and future. His work on ‘The Next Learning System’ has been translated into more than twelve languages. Roland is also Director of Educational Heretics Press, Director/Trustee of the Centre for Personalised Education Trust Ltd. He is also a former Special Professor of Education at the University of Nottingham and was Lecturer and then Senior Lecturer in Education at the University of Birmingham.
He is an acknowledged Educational Heretic for his view that mass compulsory schooling is an obsolete and counter-productive learning system which should be phased out as soon as possible and schools should be recycled into something more personalised, flexible and humane. He began researching home-based education in 1977, appearing as an expert witness in key legal hearings.

His response, together with a piece entitled “A Kind of Treason” can be read here.


Roland has given permission for his response to be shared with home educators, and those members of parliament and the press that home educators are in contact with, should they feel it would be useful.
