Finding a home for schooling

March 1st, 2010 Posted in Uncategorized

The German home-schooling family which fled the government in their country has been granted asylum by a federal immigration judge in Memphis, on the grounds that they face persecution for both their religious beliefs and their social group. The U.S. Immigration and Customs authority is appealing the judge’s decision, reportedly for fear of inviting applications from many more home-schooling families persecuted across Europe. Apparently that would be some sort of tragedy, having to deal with thousands of families so committed to educating their children that they’re willing to face the onus of their secular governments.
