Our Friends The Germans

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.
You would think that a country that would even consider the possibility of incest would be more open to less sinister activities, such as parents seeing to the education of their children personally.
When the left urges that we become more like the Europeans, this is what they mean.
