Influential Conservative pressure group ‘Bright Blue’ are recommending that Child Benefit should be denied to those parents who decide not to send their children to pre-school education from the age of three.
The new report which can be found here: https://www.jrf.org.uk/report/reducing-poverty-promoting-diverse-social-networks states the following:
The receipt of Child Benefit should be conditional upon all parents eligible for the Early Years Free Entitlement when their children are between the ages of three and four (from aged two for the most disadvantaged parents) enrolling their children in quality pre-school education.
Bright Blues believe this will help tackle poverty and assist children from such backgrounds to potentially break out of the cycle.
But what it actually is in reality is another attack on the poor and an attack on parents freedoms.
This whole proposal also works on the basis that public education is the only viable method of education for your child, they also are basing this on the belief that children attending a pre-school service from as young as two is beneficial for the Child’s education & development. But this is just a belief system based on ‘certain’ research performed by the bias academia system. Bright Blue seem to be aiming this proposal at ethnic groups which in itself is surely discrimination but of course would have to apply to everyone within the bottom end of the wealth spectrum.
How would this apply to a parent who has decided to home educate their Child and has no need for the public schooling system ?
There are many parents on low incomes who choose to home school as they believe that a Child should be with their parent(s) in their childhood years, in fact there is a huge amount of evidence to support this. It seems madness that we now live in a society that recommended parents part with their Children from as early as 2 years old, replacing the parent figure, with a establishment figure who cannot provide the Love and comfort young children need. Many parents including myself do not send their Children to the public School system as they believe much of the academia is simply not true, theory is taught as fact leaving no room for free thinking. School is primarily about conformity, ensuring children ‘fit’ into the mainstream society. Parents have a right to want better for their child and whether they are right or wrong it is ultimately the parents decision to decide what is best for their Children.
What’s proposed is nothing more, nothing less than good old fasioned BLACKMAIL
Sending your baby, your child away at ages as low as two, three, four even five is actually quite disturbing, placing your precious two year old into the care of complete strangers, preparing them for what they believe is an acceptable lifestyle – a conforming slave nation.
