NASHVILLE, Tenn. — A couple who fled Germany with their five children over fears they would lose custody for not sending them to school has asked a federal appeals court to grant them asylum in the U.S.
Uwe and Hannelore Romeike (roh-MEYE-kee) claim in court documents that German schools are anti-Christian and the couple believe God wants them to teach their children at home.
Germany's government requires students to attend a state-approved school, and parents who violate the law can face fines, jail and possible custody loss.
