The Kingdom of Sweden took a dramatic turn toward totalitarianism with the adoption of a sweeping new education reform package that essentially prohibits home schooling and forces all schools to teach the same government curriculum.The draconian 1,500-page law deceptively referred to by the Swedish government as The new Education Act - for knowledge, choice and security was approved by Parliament last week amidst strong criticism and opposition.

Kind of scary, honestly.
There was talk of them wanting to outlaw homeschooling in either ohio or missouri (I forget which), unless you had a teaching degree.I thought perhaps it's worth it to go back to college just to get a teaching degree just so that I could teach mine and others kids!

The kings of this world conspire against the Lord and His Anointed. But, the Lord laughs at them, and will bring them to swift destruction, as he has all tyrants and wicked men throughout history.May out Lord be with the faithful in Sweden, and grant them opportunity to persevere in continuing to homeschool their children or flee the country.
well emigration never been so dear to my thoughts as of now, I have four children that is to enter the schools the next few years, unless the Lord leads me otherwise. Those who feel lead could remember me and my family in prayers.
