    The hysteria continues.

    5 ‘well-educated’ kids put in state custody
    Ruling that sent homeschooler to psych ward expanded to 2nd family

    No, the kids were not removed from their home. It appears that the authorities are using the court as leverage to get the kids into school. Homeschooling is illegal in Germany. If parents feel a need to homeschool they need to go sub rosa. And if (or when) caught the kids ought to go to school while you lobby for legislative relief. Putting your family at risk is just plain stupid.

    UPDATE: Valerie Moon has a nice rundown. Definitely worth a read.

    They also could get the frak out of Germany and move someplace where homeschooling is better tolerated by the government.

    I got an e-mail about this today from a group called AFA. They are asking me to send an e-mail of complaint to the German government (why would they care what I think). At the end they ask for a donation.

    The American Family Association is among the most wingnutty of groups. Their missives are suitable only for the comedic value and for lining the bottom of bird cages.
