Arrested for homeschooling

Gerald has this story about a woman who was arrested at her home in Germany and thrown in jail for the heinous crime of homeschooling her twelve children. From the story he points to, the European Court of Human Rights stated,

“Parents may not refuse the right to education of a child on the basis of their convictions,” adding that the right to education “by its very nature calls for regulation by the state.”

If you’ve read my last post already and think my concept of a secular humanist dhimmitude was bloviating hyperbole, perhaps this story will make you at least think twice. The rule of thumb is always, “never give control of something to the state which you may wish to control in the future”. But you knew that already, right?
