nun, was mich angeht, ist dies einer der wenigen punkte, an denen ich mit der meinung meiner regierenden übereinstimme. ich wage mir nicht vorzustellen, welche blüten die "hauserziehung" in deutschland treiben würde. die ersten ableger davon hatten wir schon in staatlichen schulen, die sich sehr schwer damit taten, dagegen tätig zu werden. auf initiative der medien machten sie´s dann doch: tätig werden. es hätte auch ganz anders ausgehen können ...

Ob die Herren Kritiker auch so aufschreien würden, wenn es um die Erziehung von muslimischen Kindern durch ihre islamistischen Eltern ginge?

Some gifted homeschoolers seem to defy the negative stereotypes in your last paragraph.

It's also worth noting that most western European countries are more tolerant than Germany of home education. According to this 2005 article:

"There are countries which:
- accomodate home educators and have always done so (Belgium, Denmark, Eire, France, Italy, Luxembourg, Norway, Portugal, most of Switzerland, UK);
- have not permitted home education sometime in the past, but now do so (Austria);
- now no longer permit home education in the word of law, but would appear to permit individual instances (Spain, Greece, two Swiss cantons, Netherlands);
- have compulsory schooling (Germany)."

What a trashy website. The parents want to home school their children, but they can't even write the word 'family' [fam liy] without typos? And look at that terrible little banner they put on their website. By the way: Maybe the family should move to China, famous for its religious freedoms and home of ESPRIT, the fashion label on one of the kid's sweat shirt.
