Germany forbids homeschooling

Brussels Journal reports:
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.
I usually ignore stories with some gratuitous reference to Hitler, but I do think that homeschooling is a human right.

Update: The EU upheld the ban.
