As a retired British author, lecturer, professional educator (rektor) and life-long teacher (in private and state schools, and as a private tutor) who has been resident in Sweden for over 12 years, and who has been homeschooling his own children for the past 8 years (see Section #A, Personal Preface, of the enclosed Report), I feel compelled to share my thoughts on the proposed school law Ds 2009:25, and thank you for the opportunity to do so.
I am accordingly sending you a hard-copy remissvar paper with this letter entitled, An Independent Study and Critique of the Swedish Government's Proposed New Legislation on Homeschooling in accordance with Lagförslagets 22 kapitel 18-19 §§, which you will have received well before the end of Week #39 during the Consultative Period.
A short summary of my main points may be found in Section #B of the enclosed report, Summary of the 30 Key Points of This Report, which are developed in-depth in the remainder of the report.
This paper is simultaneously being distributed worldwide to the media and to public and private organisations interested in education and homeschooling, and to the appropriate organs of the United Nations and European Union.
I have already forwarded you pdf-file (HSCCMW.pdf) for uploading to your website in an email entitled, Remissvar - Betänkande om förslag till ny skollag Ds 2009:25 and dated 2009-09-19 which you should by now have received.
