Alexandra Colen, the conservative Brussels journalist and homeschool parent, delivers a troubling - amend that to very troubling - update about a European family that have previously been in the news:
"Last Thursday the German police arrested Katharina Plett, a homeschooling mother of twelve. Yesterday her husband fled to Austria with the children. Homeschooling is illegal in Germany since Hitler banned it in 1938. The Plett family belongs to a homeschooling group of seven Baptist families in Paderborn."
Below the article, Alexandra's husband, Paul Belien, posts an address for Frau Plett and encourages readers to mail letters of support to her.
More public controversy involving a home educator: Frank Vance, the blogger who has been sued by Ligonier Ministries, posts this blog entry.
