The shadow of Adolf Hitler casts its cold spell on Home-schooling

Posted: December 11, 2007 in Uncategorized



After checking that I hadn’t slipped into a parallel universe I could not believe the news in September; that a family in Germany had there 15 year old daughter forcibly removed from her home and placed with foster parents in an unknown location for 3 months.

This was a government enforced action -apparently home-schooling (the crime which precipitated the German government to intervene ) is such a crime as to be consider worse than forcibly separating a 15 year old girl from her family?!?

The genius behind this law is none other than Adolf Hitler,amazingly this law remains on the statute books ! For a nation that wants to divorce itself from its nazi past, this whole story would not be out of place in Hitler’s Germany.

Happily once Melissa Busekros turned 16 the law no longer could constrain her, she left the foster home and is currently back at home.

This is not the end of the story as there are other home-schooling families  who are under pressure and Melissa may yet have to face further action by the German Government.

The point is this, Homeschooling is the right of every parent should they choose and the Current German government is acting on a law that removes that right -I hesitate to put Hitlers image at the top of this post as it only serves to polarise but I have the right to protest and that image is part of that!
