An American judge on Tuesday granted
asylum to a German couple who wanted to homeschool their children, bringing
international attention to the debate in Germany over the rights of parents to

The decision came from immigration judge Lawrence O. Burman in Memphis, Tennessee. Judge Burman said the German government violated Uwe and Hannelore Romeike's "basic human rights."
