There's something seriously missing in this story. Home schooling is growing by leaps and bounds in the US, without any government harassment or interference - there's no prohibition against home schooling here. These people are, as far as I understand, German citizens, applying for political asylum on the grounds that they're not allowed to home school their kids in Germany? That should be grounds for granting political asylum? I don't think so.

I dunno Missouri. I'm just a dumb old truck driver. These people just look like folks seeking freedom. Not much else here. Not that I can see. It's confusing to see people objecting. This is what america is about. Least to the Old School.

...ACTUALLY, 'Mule, there have been many attempts by Blue States to outlaw home schooling... most recently, California tried it a year or two ago.

There's good reason why. Housewives with only a high school education do significantly better at educating their own children with none of the government propaganda than government dropout factory monopolies run by special interest teacher unions.

Best educated children in the world are American home schooled children.

Look who are the top 10 contenders in every national spelling bee or geography bee. You see many home schooled children when in total numbers compared to public and private schooled children, there are few.

They got political asylum on religious persecution at home. THAT is grounds for political asylum. I laid out the relevant Supreme court cases below and homeschooling is a fundamental right not just something that is 'permitted'

The denial of a fundamental right and persecution for it is also a reason for asylum

Missourimule, it's ironic that you're unaware of a camel's nose under the tent of our constitutional freedoms.

The Romeike family fled their German homeland in 2008 seeking political asylum in the United States – where they hoped to home school their children. Instead, the Obama administration wants the evangelical Christian family deported.

The fate of Uwe and Hannelore Romeikie – along with their six children – now rests with the Sixth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals – after the Dept. of Homeland Security said they don’t deserve asylum.

Neither the Justice Dept. nor the Dept. of Homeland Security returned calls seeking comment.

“The Obama administration is basically saying there is no right to home school anywhere,” said Michael...
