Germans flee to home school in US
For all we write about persecution in the United States, when it comes to home schooling, German citizens flee their country for the freedom to teach their children. A US judge recently granted asylum to a German family with five children. The article in the French paper, Le Monde, used accurate language to describe the goverment’s “free” “public” “school system” as compulsory schooling. However, the article cast home schooling as driven by religious views, when it’s about allowing people the right to study what they want and how they want.Â The idea of sitting in a room with 30 other people with different abilities and interests, yet all being forced to learn the same subject is not what many would call smart schooling.
