I have recently emailed Paula Bennett MP (Minister of Social Development and Employment) asking her to continue supporting single home-schooling parents with the DPB. I did this after hearing that the government may introduce work-testing for home-schooling mothers on the DPB. Ms Bennett’s office confirmed that this issue is indeed CURRENTLY under consideration.
I would like to ask as many of you as possible to join with me in writing to Paula Bennett on behalf of the single mums in our home-schooling community. The single home-educating mums I know are doing such an incredible job with their children…it seems terrible to think that they may lose the choice to home-educate because they are no longer financially supported.
Please join me so that Paula Bennett hears from many of us on this issue – it only requires an email for our voices of support to be heard. Her email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
Many thanks for reading this – now PLEASE TAKE ACTION on behalf of the single mums among us!!
