The Obama administration singled out for deportation a home-schooling German family that recently fled their country because of Nazi-era laws that required all German children to attend only government sanctioned schools. The Obama administration argued to the Supreme Court that the German government’s desire to “promote socialization, pluralism, tolerance and democracy” outweighs the human right of parents to decide how their children are educated. So, the law that supposedly promotes tolerance and diversity is being used to brutally enforce rigid conformity. Somewhere, Joseph Goebbels is smiling.
As near as I can see, they are guilty of homeschooling while German. I don’t see why the Administration’s arguments would not likewise apply to American homeschoolers. And I wonder if they might not well be taken as a precedent for crushing American homeschoolers if they gain currency. Any lawyers out there wanna comment?
