Homeschooling a Crime in GermanySubmitted by nathalja on Tue, 01/15/2008 - 03:04
Digg this! It will happen here next!
“Homeschoolers need to be making plans to flee Germany en masse after a government document implied the advent of a coming crackdown that would target them, an advocate says,” reports WorldNetDaily.
The government letter is addressed to “School Administrations of State and Private Schools” and its subject line specifies “Custody withdrawal for violation of mandatory school attendance.”
“The [German] court determined that the parents’ refusal to send their children to either a state or a state approved private school is a misuse of parental custody rights, which violates the well-being of the child,” the letter, dated just a few weeks ago… “and which requires actions by the family court.
Germany has not had banned homeschoolers since the Nazis ruled. Are you surprised that it is being implemented now? After all, the European Union is not much different than Hitler’s Thousand Year Reich. Only difference is the bureaucrats wear fancy suits instead of black uniforms, although I’m sure the “child protective services” thugs — call them Gestapo — who will go after reticent homeschoolers will be dressed in black.
“The behavior of German authorities against families who homeschool goes against the very fiber of what free and democratic societies stand for – that governments exist to protect the rights of people not to take them away,” Mike Donnelly, a staff attorney for the HSLDA [the Home School Legal Defense Association], said. “In Germany it appears that the judicial, executive and legislative branches of government do not care to protect the human right of parents to direct the upbringing and education of their children which includes the right to homeschool – a view shared by nearly all other western civilized countries.”
Of course, this is entirely superfluous, as in Germany and the rest of Europe children are wards of the state and the state will not allow parents to pollute the minds of their property with old and out-dated ideas, such as family and “free and democratic societies.”
All of this will come to America soon enough, as the NAU creeps forward.
