The Wunderlichs

The Wunderlichs — the German family fighting for their children after the government seized them for home schooling — have gotten full custody of their children back after a year of state intrusion. But at what cost will they keep them?

Even the Universal Declaration of Human Rights acknowledges that parents have a prior right to determine the kind of education that their children will receive. So how can Germany’s actions be conscionable in this day and age?

As long as children are being educated and not neglected, should it not be up to each family to determine what kind of education their children will receive?

(Link is to our allies at the Home School Legal Defense Association.)

Wunderlich children returned! Make homeschooling legal in Germany. Learn how you can help!
