Homeschooling Victory in Sweden

"This is an extremely important decision by a Swedish court, and the first ray of light for the Swedish homeschooling community." -Christopher Warren, homeschooling father
(Stockholm, Sweden)—A Swedish appeals court unanimously ruled that homeschooling parents in Gothenburg can teach their children at home, in accordance with their beliefs.
Noting that homeschooling continues to be under governmental attack in Sweden, a World Net Daily report states that this victory may be a turning point in the ongoing battle.
The mother of the children awarded in the case, Leah Namdar, said, "For us, we're tremendously happy—thank God, thank God . . .The bedrock of a healthy society is belief in God, and one of the challenges in Sweden in general is the sense that many, many people in the country [are] living without belief in God."
Jonas Himmelstrand, the president of the Swedish Homeschooling Association, said, "In the end, Swedish home education will most certainly outlive the present Swedish policies on home education."
