From home educators in Italy:
Hello!Homeschooling in Italy is still small but it is already facing the danger of annual compulsory exams.On the link below you will find all details about the new law and ways to help the Italian homescholing families.http://www.controscuola.it/protect-our-education-rights-no-annual-compulsory-exams-for-italian-home-ed-kids/Thank you,Cinira
Dear homeschooler friends,
The Italian Parliament has recently approved an Act (no.384 “Buona Scuola”) stating that the fulfilment of the duty of Education by the parents must be proved through annual school exams. Up until today our regulamentation protected the freedom of teaching and families that chose this path simply had to notify the school officials on a yearly basis.
At present the Ministry is drawing up the final version of this Act that would lead home-ed families toward the same standardized and levelled situation that is already badly affecting the Italian school system.
It is now time to join our forces to lobby the Ministry for the removal of any references to home education from the Act no.384 or, at least, for their compliance with the current regulations.
Members of Parliament and Senate from different political groups are supporting us, as they perfectly understand that this Act from “Buona Scuola” set of rules is highly unconstitutional.
Ask your families and friends to raise their voices against this Act.
Join us and sign the following letter that will be sent to the Italian Ministry of Education and her staff.
Please personalize this letter with your name and Country of residence.
Thanks for your support from all the fellow Italian Home Educating families!
