The persecution against homeschooling families in Germany continues to receive American coverage. Now, it's the Brause family of Zittau (five children) who are the targets of the government.
Talk about punitive damages: "According to court documents translated by the International Human Rights Group, the parents were also ordered to pay all court costs, estimated at almost $4000. The judge's order was based solely on the parents' unwillingness to send their children to the public school, in violation of Germany's mandatory school attendance law."
Question: Has there been much public outrage in Germany over these abuses?

Dana H. responds to my query: "Close to none. The general consensus seems to be that this is an American Christian phenomenon and 'there must be something more to the case.' Most of the discussion I have read supports the state and agrees that homeschooling should be illegal, which is, of course, why it is illegal in Germany."
