Swedish Homeschoolers Walk to Freedom—July 13 to 19, 2012
If you're like me you can't fly to Sweden to join in their protests against their draconian homeschooling law, but you certainly want to support their effort. As the following short film shows, many families have chosen to leave Sweden and live where they are allowed to homeschool instead of compelling their children to attend conventional Swedish schools. It is an awful situation for learners who do not thrive in conventional schools, and for teachers who seek personalized, non-standard ways for helping children when conventional methods fails. As the organizers note in the film, Sweden is in violation of the European Commission on Human Rights by denying parents the right to educate their children according to their own religioius and philosophical beliefs.
