Campaign launched on behalf of German teen
Homeschool students and their families across America are being urged to flood the German embassy with e-mail, telephone calls and letters in support of a German teen who was taken by police to a psychiatric ward because she was being homeschooled.

WND reported late last week on that situation, when a German organization working in support of homeschooling, even though it's illegal in Germany, contacted the news site.

Hans, you are quite right in your observation of how the story is reported. It lacks important information, especially from the "other side" to explain the actions taken against the girl and her parents. Remember folks, good reporting must be honest and thorough, even if we are sympathetic to the story. I am a homeschooling parent, and value my freedom to educate my own children. I don't think our cause is advanced, or our reputation as Christians is enhanced when we engage in sensationalist, one-sided reporting like this. The truth can stand on its own. If the story "disappears" once we have the other side, then we need to accept that the story simply won't be as captivating, even if it is still important.

True Neil. In Pennsylvania the father of the public school system was Thadeus Stevens, the architect of "Reconstruction". He treated the parents of Pennsylvania with the same arrogant disregard that he treated the Southern people (the overwhelming majority of whom had nothing to do with slavery). Children were forced to attend, and parents who resisted were jailed. It's amazing how such a "noble" system had to be imposed with tyranical fury in both Massachusetts and Pennsylvania.

If you knew the history of German educational statism and its American derivative, then it wouldn't seem so incredible. But contrary to the impression HSDLA gives, it didn't start with the Nazis, but with Johann Gottlieb Fichte in 1806, where in his "Appeal to the German Nation," he advocated educational statism, anti-Semitism, and other "reforms." American educational "reformers" like Horace Mann (a Unitarian) later saw the tidy little Prussian Sparta, and strove to emulate it here, 1st in Massachusetts. America had too much liberty for its own good.

Has anyone been able to confirm this story from a legitimate German press agency? It smells a little alarmist to me - almost as though something was left out in order to make a story, the likes of which will get people's juices flowing.

I don't get it. Melissa is 17. Surely a 17-year-old doesn't have to go to school.

Assuming this is fact there is something very creepy about that country..... sounding more like communist China.
