In an article title The Homeschool Movement’s German Lesson Joy Pavelski reports in The American, the Journal of the American Enterprise Institute, on the German homeschooling family which moved to the U.S.:
On January 26, a Tennessee judge granted political asylum to Uwe and Hannelore Romeike and their five children, three years after German police forcibly transferred the three eldest children—then aged 9, 8, and 6—from their home in Bissingen to state school.
