Germany declares WAR on homeschooling

Check out the short video and read the article by clicking on the title link or clicking here.

As stated in earlier posts, the German government's argument against home schooling as stated by Wolfgang Drautz, German Consul General is that "The public has a legitimate interest in countering the rise of parallel societies that are based on religion or motivated by different world views and in integrating minorities into the population as a whole."

"Germany does not want the kind of citizens that home schooling produces. They've seen how the home-schooling movement in the U.S. developed and they're very keen on that not happening here," said German academic Klaus Guenther, who is also an American citizen and was home schooled.

I'll bet they don't. As I mentioned the other day, staggering numbers of home schoolers are more likely to vote and be politically active than the general population. Moreover, only 4% of former homeschoolers believe politics and government are too difficult to understand. That would be a dangerous number of informed citizens for a government that is using as its justification a law that was first put into effect during the Third Reich!

Where is the EU in all of this? I thought they were going to be getting involved.
