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.”
