US Victory for Home Schoolers - Sort of

The Washington times reports on an immigration case that has allowed a German family to be granted political asylum due to Germany's stringent anti-home-schooling laws. Would that the right to home school a family's children, and other alternative-to-government-enforced-and-programmed schools (i.e., private and parochial schools), were equitably supported by the US, states, and many local governments.

The story may be found here.
Quote of the day: "We know many people, especially other German home-schoolers, have been praying for us. Their prayers and ours have been answered," Mr. Romeike said. "We greatly appreciate the freedom to home-school we now have in America and will be building our new life here."
