Major reversal for homeschool dad sentenced to jail


A Cuban appeals court has surprised the homeschooling world by reversing a one-year prison sentence imposed on pastor Ramón Rigal for taking his children out of government schools and homeschooling them.

WND reported in May when Rigal and his wife, Adya, went to court in the communist nation on government charges they were homeschooling their children.

Both were convicted. He was ordered to a year in jail and she to a year of home detention. In the trial, the judge refused the couple permission to bring in witnesses.

The couple began homeschooling last winter because their children were bullied at Cuba’s public
