With only weeks before oral arguments in a potentially precedent-setting human rights case, Home School Legal Defense Association, the world’s largest homeschool association, has launched a petition on the White House website insisting that the Obama Administration grant permanent legal status to the Romeikes, a family persecuted for homeschooling in Germany.
The White House petition has garnered nearly 20,000 signatures, but needs a total of 100,000 by April 18 to get an official response from the Administration.
While whitehouse.gov has seen petitions ranging from serious to comical — including creating a “Death Star” and requesting Congressmen to wear sponsorships like NASCAR drivers — HSLDA believes that the Romeike petition is of utmost importance because a family’s human rights are at stake.
