ECHR Gets it Very Wrong

That's a "NO" for German home schooling then.

(Thank goodness, yet again, for the British Liberal tradition and we resort to praying that it works in the face of European injustice.)

This bit is particularly baffling:the Court upheld the findings of German Administrative Courts that “the applicant children were unable to foresee the consequences of their parents decision for home education because of their young age.”

Small children are unable to foresee the consequences of any educational choice made by parents, but on the basis that someone has to make a decision about it, the ECHR gives the choice to parents. This judgment appears to do the opposite.

Quite so. I wonder what happens in the case of conflicting judgements?
