Homeschooling is ILLEGAL in Germany! - Please sign the petition online to the German Government, there are only 1000 signatures now, 50,000 are needed!

All nationalities may sign:

1. register here:
https://epetitionen.bundestag.de/ind...ction=register

2. Click on the link in the e-mail you receive

3. Sign the petition (click on "mitzeichnen") here:

Thank you!

Did you know that Germans got political asylum in the US for being prosecuted as homeschoolers in Germany?

Forward to all your friends, other forums and groups please!

Like I wrote, ALL nationalities can sign this petition as per German law, so you can help, too. In case of language problems, you can use google translate, but it is pretty obvious to fill in.

As per Grundgesetz Artikel 17
http://dejure.org/gesetze/GG/17.html
translated with google

ConstitutionI. The Fundamental Rights (Articles 1 - 19 )

Article 17

Everyone has the right to apply individually or in community with others and with written requests or complaints to the competent authorities and to the people's representatives.

----------------------

I would not have thought that myself, but since I learned about this, I thought I need to ask for help from the big mothering community, from US unschoolers and homeschoolers.
