Last month, the Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) group presented a friend-of-the-court brief to the United States Supreme Court in favor of the Romeike family’s United States political asylum from Germany. The various organizations associated with the defense of the family also provide fuel for often unfortunate tales in modern home education’s historical emergence. A synopsis showing this particular home-school posse’s story is below, keeping in mind many of these groups are not associated with most homeschooling families. That could very likely include the Romeike family and their lack of knowledge of some shady backgrounds. Even though Uwe and Hannelore Romeike seem to have chosen Home School Legal Defense Association (HSLDA) commander, Mike Farris, to lead their legal and publicity positions.
