Homeschooling WINSday

Okay...I know this is supposed to be "Worship Wednesday"...but I've sorta got that covered at the parish blog.

Today I just want to briefly highlight a that a German couple has been granted political asylum in the US because...get this...they wanted to home educate their children. Homeschooling is illegal in Germany. After having their children forcibly removed and taken to school, they contacted the HSDLA who filed on their behalf.

I was glad to hear that they'll be settling in what used to be my back yard, Morristown, TN.

As much as I admire Germany, their making home schooling illegal is a really terrible thing and I am glad this family can raise their children according to their conscience.
