interference and meddling in the education of our children, with plans to yet
again ‘reform’ our schools system, to force feed propaganda to our children by
teaching Gordon Brown’s version of ‘Britishness’ and Al Gore’s film on Climate
Change, the worst is yet to come.

The European Court of Human Rights,
court, whose verdicts apply in the entire European Union, ruled that the right
to education “by its very nature calls for regulation by the State.”
It upheld the
finding of German courts: “Schools
represent society, and it is in the children’s interest to become part of that
society. The parents’ right to educate does not go so far as to deprive
their children of that experience.”
The law that was
upheld? Hitler’s 1938 schooling bill.
The case arose
following the arrest of the father, and the confinement of a young girl because
she was home educated.
Bearing in mind
that Germany currently holds the EU presidency, and that our own
government is in the process of ‘updating’ the Mental Health Act’ the following
is a very disturbing report.
month, a German teenager was forcibly taken from her parents and imprisoned in
a psychiatric ward. Her crime? She is being home-schooled.

German police officers forced their way into the home of the Busekros family in
the Bavarian town of Erlangen. They hauled off 16-year-old Melissa, the
eldest of the six Busekros children, to a psychiatric ward in nearby Nuremberg. Last week, a court affirmed that Melissa

Home-schooling has been illegal in Germany since Adolf
Hitler outlawed it in 1938
and ordered all children to be sent to
state schools. The home-schooling community in Germany is tiny.
As Hitler knew,
Germans tend to obey orders unquestioningly. Only some 500 children are being home-schooled in a country of 80 million.
Home-schooling families are prosecuted without mercy.
Last March, a
judge in Hamburg sentenced a home-schooling father of six to a week in prison and a fine of $2,000.
Last September, a Paderborn mother of 12 was locked up in jail for
two weeks. The family belongs to a group of seven ethnic German families who
immigrated to Paderborn from the former Soviet Union.
They fled because the former Soviets persecuted them because they were
An initiative of the Paderborn Baptists to establish their own private
school was rejected by the German authorities. A court ruled that the Baptists showed “a stubborn contempt both for the state’s educational
duty as well as the right of their children to develop their personalities by
political parties, including the Christian Democrats of Chancellor Angela
Merkel, are opposed to home-schooling. They say that “the obligation to attend
school is a civil obligation, that cannot be tampered with.”
In Germany, schools
have become vehicles of indoctrination, where children are brought up to unquestioningly accept the authority of the
state in all areas of life. It is no coincidence that people who have escaped Soviet indoctrination
discern what the government is doing in the schools and are sufficiently
concerned to want to protect their children from it.
What is worrying is that most “free-born” Germans accept this assault on
their freedom as normal and eye parents who opt out of the state system with
It is disquieting that Europeans have not learned the lessons from
their dictatorial past, upholding
Nazi laws and sending dissidents, including children, to psychiatric wards, as
the Soviets used to do.
But it is even
more disturbing that they are now going to impose the same rules on Britain.
Not to be left out of the rush to exert total control over everyone
everywhere, Blair's government is preparing a ‘consultation’ on Home
Schooling, and amendments to the law.
