A judge has issued a stunning verdict in a homeschooling case in Germany, ordering that the parents cannot have custody of their children because the family might move to another country and homeschool, posing a “concrete endangerment” to the children....The judge, in his ruling, said that even though the Wunderlich children were academically proficient, well-adjusted socially and without educational deficiencies, he was horrified by homeschooling.What horrifies me is a judge who thinks he has the right to decide for parents how to educate their children. His judgment is what's horrifying and, as Mike Farris points out, the attitude is common among American judges as well. Children are the future and tyrants always go after education to mold the minds of the young. That the ban on homeschooling in Germany was implemented by Adolf Hitler says it all. That the neo-fascist judges in Germany are removing children from their families and giving them to social workers when they are "well-adjusted socially and without educational deficiencies" is shocking. Who do they think they are? But, hey, the kids might not learn how to put condoms on bananas and be tolerant of deviant behavior!
An unofficial translation of the court document is available here. Pray for this family and for another homeschooling family, the Romeikes, who are fighting to stay in the United States against the opposition of the Obama administration. Pray the judges on the Supreme Court do the right thing!
