Illegal to homeschool

Did you know that it is illegal to homeschool children in Germany? The people who do not wish to send their children to public school because they do not approve of how their children are taught are threatened by the local authorities to be thrown in jail.

This is a topic of some interest to me, even though I have not considered, at this time, to homeschool my own kids. However, because I live in Canada where homeschooling is permitted, I have a choice.  A choice German parents do not have.

More on this and similar perspectives are coming soon.
