Still waiting for letter: How will the new Social obligations which will be required of all beneficiary parents effect home schoolers?

Update 19 September 11:00am Paula Bennett has still not signed the letter. Again I have been given a promise that they will try to get her to sign it today or tonight. Trust it wont be too long before we get this letter.

Remember if you have an appointment about this over the next few days see if you can get it put off for a few weeks until there is some sort of policy about this. It is very disconcerting that some people have been turning up at interviews and finding that they have not been given all the information. I have heard of people at an interview being told that they have to work for 15 hours a week (and not told about a study option) or their benefit will be cut by 50%. I have heard of others who have turned up for their interview and told the person interviewing them that they are home schooling. They have then been told that they don’t have to do anything. So the standand is different depending on who you get and possibly their attitude towards home schooling.
