A pro-family advocate says home schoolers in Europe are becoming marginalized.
According to J. Michael Smith, president of the Homeschool Legal Defense Association, while home schoolers are enjoying increasing freedoms in the U.S., the opposite is true for home schoolers in Europe. In a recent Washington Times article, Smith states that Germany is the most oppressive when it comes to home schoolers because it routinely fines and imprisons them. Now events are unfolding in Great Britain that could spell trouble for home schoolers in that country as well. The culprit in this case is the U.N. Convention on the Rights of the Child.
