Chabad emmisaries in Sweden win right to homeschool

I think this court ruling is something that should apply for all Swedish citizenry, and is definitely something to appreciate for now:
A Swedish court has ruled that Chabad-Lubavitch emissaries have the right to educate their children at home. The unanimous decision of the appellate court on October 17 came in response to a lawsuit fining the family for home schooling their children.

Rabbi Alexander and Leah Namdar appealed a ruling one year ago that attempted to force them to send their children to public school in the Scandinavian nation.

In its nine-page verdict, the court ruled that the “government is deciding that the recent change to the law [that religion is not regarded as a valid reason] cannot stand in contravention to Sweden's international obligation” to protect the religious freedoms of its citizens. [...]

We are gratified by the decision of the Swedish courts in the case concerning the right of our Chabad-Lubavitch representatives in Sweden to provide their children with an education in accordance with their faith,” said Rabbi Yehuda Krinsky, Chairman of the Educational and Social Services Division of Chabad-Lubavitch in a statement following the ruling.
I hope this opens the doorway for other Swedish residents to homeschool their children as well, and not have to send them to the kind of awful public schools they sadly have, at least until any improvements can be made. If homeschooling, religious or not, can have a positive influence, then everybody there should have the right to do it.
