Protect Your Rights By Signing the Romeike Petition

If you haven’t already seen it, and especially if you haven’t signed the petition, I URGE you to take a few minutes and help this family from Germany who is being threatened by imprisonment and having their children taken away because they choose to homeschool. America has the power to grant them a continued asylum for protection.

Even larger than the tragedy surrounding this family is that this ruling could have major implications for homeschooling laws in America. Your vote isn’t just for a homeschooling family; it is for YOUR RIGHT to educate your children as you wish.

Even if you were opposed to homeschooling, I would hope you are not opposed to parents having rights about making decisions for their children–rights that are being eroded right in front of us. These are the issues at stake.

“Tackett applauded the petition and urged people to sign it. “This will be the first time that I have advocated signing a petition, but I believe this is a critical issue, one that is being played out behind big media coverage and one that could put a deep chill in the rights of parents in this country to determine the educational direction of their children,” he said.”

Anyone age 13 or older in a household can sign.

***Signature goal met–thank you!! Prayers now.***

    Thank you for sharing this here, Kelly!!! I am so excited to see that number go up… almost there! Honestly, I’d love to see WAY MORE than the needed signatures come in! :)

  3. Thank you for sending this website through to me, I believe that everyone should have a choice to home school their own children, in a world that is so against bringing up our children in a Godly way and destroying the values that the Lord gave us to live by.

    Or they could have gone to Austria (just a car-ride away), where homechooling is legal. Since Germany is part of EU, there is free movement of people withi the EU (ie. citizens can move between countries, get jobs, claim benifits without having to have residence/work permits). Most EU countries allow homeschooling (including some German speaking ones).

    There is not really an explanation if this is only about homeschooling. Going to (neighboring EU-country) Austria would have been the first option. So why should U.S. grant this family political asylum when a) there were other options available to them b) when there are people who need it because if they go back to their “home country” they will be killed by their government?
