Problem Scoping Survey Deadline: 9am Tuesday morning 7/10/14


I have just heard from Lucy we have until 9am tomorrow morning

7 October 2014 to get our Problem Solving Surveys into the MoE.

Craig with children and timeline Have you sent off your Problem Scoping Survey to the MoE yet? I have just sent mine off – a bit late. I am going to be a little cheeky here now. I got a reply from Lucy to say that she is not in the office today. So I have emailed her to see if we can get an extra day. She may not get to see that email if she does not look at her email for the rest of the day. I sent the Home Education Foundation’s Problem Solving Survey off on Saturday and Lucy was replying to that. I sent my personal Problem Solving Survey off this morning then I noticed that Lucy had emailed me 10 minutes earlier thanking me for the Home Education email acknowledging that she had received it with a note saying that she was not in the office today. So I figure that if you have not sent off your Problem Scoping Survey yet then you could still have until early tomorrow morning to send it in. I am still talking to home educators who have not heard about this Problem Scoping Survey. So I think that the MoE will not be too pedantic about the Deadline so long as we get the surveys or an email into them before they begin to process them. Lucy is the contact person for that and since she is not in the office today lets make the most of it especially on a horribly wet, windy and cold day – no gardening today.

  1. What is the chart on the floor in the photo? It looks a bit like Adams Chronological Chart of History, but hard to make out.
