I’ve written about this before, so I thought I’d give the latest, perhaps the last chapter of this story.

Briefly, the Romeikes are a Christian German family who sought to home-school their children. In Germany, that’s verboten. So, they came to the US. To Morristown, Tenn., in 2008 after facing fines and threats for refusing to send their kids to a state-approved school in Germany, which is required by law in that country. If the Romeikes had stayed in Germany, they risked losing custody of their children. They sought asylum based on religious persecution, and were granted it by the US.
