THE WAR ON HOMESCHOOLING

In Germany:

Last week, a court in Paderborn in the German state of Westphalia ruled that two Baptist couples lose their parental authority over their own children in educational matters. The court said it was interfering “in order to protect the children from further harm.” It stated that the parents had shown “a stubborn contempt both for the state’s educational duty as well as the right of their children to develop their personalities by attending school.” The court appointed the local Paderborn social service as guardian over the children to ensure that they attend public school.

Outrageous, but no surprise to homeschoolers who have faced persecution here.

Hat tip: EU Rota

Update: Betsy Newmark contrasts Germany’s treatment of homeschoolers with its treatment of suspected terrorists.
