Cuba v. Rigal

Cuban Pastor Ramón Rigal has been sentenced to a year of hard labor by the Cuban authorities, simply because he and his wife Adya have chosen to homeschool their two children. The Rigal family has appealed their case, applied to the United States for assistance, and reached out to homeschoolers around the world for support.
