Home-schoolers win asylum in U.S

A U.S. immigration judge’s decision to grant political asylum to a German family with “a well-founded fear of persecution” for home-schooling their children should send a powerful message to the German government to change its stance on home schooling…Home schooling in Germany is illegal in most cases, and violators can be fined, jailed and even lose custody of their children.

And where do American’s go when they are fined, jailed or lose custody of their children for the crime of educating their children without the blessings of the state?

Beth,
thanks for the post and the link. It is a great news story in fundamental philosophical terms.
I enthusiastically approve of the judge’s ruling.
