While I am still writing my personal Problem Solving Survey it occurred to me that only those who have filled out the Problem Solving Survey or sent an email about itwill be sent the feedback and the summary of the collated feedback – or maybe it will just be sent to some selected home educators.
After 3 October 2014, we will be collating all the feedback from the home schooling sector and organisations involved in home schooling. We will summarise what is working well and anything that people would like to see changed. A copy of all the feedback and the summary of this collated feedback will be provided to the home schooling sector by the end of November 2014. We will seek feedback from the sector on this document to ensure we have accurately captured what is working well and what people would like to see changed. The feedback we receive from the home schooling sector will inform us of the next steps. Any proposed next steps will be provided to the home schooling sector for comment also by the end of November 2014.
When I asked if I could put the findings of the Red Tape Cluster Buster team on this website this is the answer that I got from them:
Unfortunately we cannot answer yes to putting the notes online; the reason for this is that the notes are an amalgamation of all our meetings and therefore not “ours” as such, but everyone’s who fed into the process.
I will ask if I can put the feedback and the summary of the collated feedback of the Problem Scoping Survey on this website but I am expecting that I will get a similar answer. So my suggestion to you is if you would like to be getting the feedback and the summary of the collated feedback then you might be more likely to get a copy of it if you put in a Scoping Survey or write an email about it.
You don’t have to fill in every box in the survey or send a long email. Just pick something from:
what the MoE is doing well,
or what the MoE is not doing well
or that you would like to see improved.
Time is limited now – the deadline has passed but by my reckoning I figure we have until early Monday morning to send in our surveys or emails. The deadline was the 3rd, that is Friday midnight. The MoE wont be working over the weekend so let’s get as much feedback to them by early Monday that we can.
Here is the link that I have been trying to get out far and wide (although I was talking to a home educator just last night who had not heard about the Scoping Survey at all.) So please forward this email to other home educators and to your support groups to pass around. OK back to the link: MoE Problem Scoping Survey: please make it known and fill it out. There are a number of ideas that you can use to stimulate your thinking, you can write about other things or just copy and paste what you agree with.
Here is the Home Education Foundation’s Scoping Survey which I emailed this afternoon: Home Education Foundation’s Problem Scoping Survey. Again feel free to use anything that you would like from the Home Education Foundation’s Problem Solving Survey.
Now to finish my personal Problem Scoping Survey
Don’t forget to get your Problem Scoping Surveys into the MoE today (at a stretch early Monday morning – the MoE wont be working over the weekend, we have until midnight to get the Problem Scoping Surveys in, so early Monday morning will get the Surveys to the MoE before they start processing them).
Addresses for sending the Scoping Survey back:
snail mail: Lucy Ambrose, 45-47 Pipitea St, Wellington
phone: 04 463 8946 | Ext 48946
or look for the addresses in Jim Greening’ letter.
