Why some countries welcome children being taught...

This story about the Romeike family from Germany is an eye opener. Many of us take for granted that homeschooling is welcome everywhere in this world. Not so!

"Under Germany’s stringent rules, home schooling is allowed only in exceptional circumstances. Before emigrating, Mr and Mrs Romeike had been fined some €12,000 ($17,000); policemen had arrived at their house and forcibly taken their children to school. The Romeikes feared that the youngsters might soon be removed by the state."

Kudos and the best of luck to the Romeikes!
