telegraph.co.uk Ministers are planning a crackdown on home schooling amid fears that radical Islamists could be filling their children’s minds with “poison”.
Nicky Morgan, the Education Secretary, is preparing tougher regulation of home education after officials disclosed they had no idea how many children were being kept out of formal classes by their parents.Measures will be drawn up to ensure councils and teachers keep proper records when parents remove their children from state schools to be educated at home.

Separately, proposals are being considered to speed up the disciplinary for teachers who promote extremist views in schools so they are banned from the classroom more quickly.
