Homeschooling Illegal in Germany

A disturbing story from Germany, where parents have been fined by the government for refusing to allow their children to attend a play the parents disapproved of on religious grounds. German parents are not allowed to opt out of any of their children's classes or activities, even something as innocuous as a play.

What's worse, homeschooling has been illegal in Germany since the time of Hitler, and parents who have attempted to homeschool are losing guardianship of their children.
