Dear Friends,

Should homeschooling be illegal?

That's what seems to be its status in Germany. Could it ever happen in the U.S.?

To answer that question, on June 26th FRC's DC lecture series will continue with Michael Donnelly, the Home School Legal Defense Association's (HSLDA) director of international affairs, and Daniel Blomberg, legal counsel for the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty, discussing, "Should the State Be Raising Your Kids?"

Many of FRC's friends and supporters teach their children at home, which is why the case of the Romeike family of Germany is so troubling. Here's the background:

The Romeike's were "granted asylum by a U.S. judge due to the persecution they had experienced for homeschooling their children in Germany ...The family believes that the school system in Germany does not teach what they as Christians believe should be taught to their children, so they wish to teach their children in an environment where their convictions are honored - their home ... Recently, the U.S. government has denied the Romeike's request for asylum from this type of oppression in Germany. The family has appealed and is awaiting a final decision on their status. Will America be a land of refuge or will we close our doors to those who wish to direct the upbringing of their children?"

Liberties we cherish and have long taken for granted are being eroded. Join us in person here at our Washington headquarters or watch online, at no charge, by registering here.
