1. Homeschooling in Switzerland

Homeschooling in Switzerland is legal and is growing as a movement.
Switzerland has 26 cantons (similar to states in the U.S.) and each
canton has a different homeschool law, but the majority allow

2. Good Fences Make Good Neighbors--Usually

When the Katz [not their real name] family moved into their rural
Ohio community, they were delighted to discover that an older
gentleman next door wanted to "help out" with various tasks. Over

hired to do tasks around the property, they decided something had to
be done.

are homeschooled students. We expected, when they were elected
earlier this year, that they would be on the front lines of the fight
for religious liberty.
