PHILADELPHIA--(Business Wire)--
Homeschooling activists across the nation are calling to "Reverse
the Ruling," targeting the recent opinion published by California
Justice H. Walter Croskey that parents "do not have a constitutional
right to homeschool their children."

   On, education activists have been
separating fact from fiction, and schooling the general public on the
recent events relating to homeschooling in California, as well as
working with homeschoolers all across the nation to gather over
100,000 petition signatures demanding that this ruling be reversed.

   "Homeschooling has been a freedom practiced long before the
Constitution captured our inalienable rights, with many of the
Declaration of Independence signatures coming from men that were
homeschooled. Our opinion is quite clear," said Mimi Rothschild,
leader of "Parents are responsible to train
their children to the very best of their ability and to teach them all
they believe to be true. Parents are blessed with children, and
obligated to care for all aspects of their children's lives, including
who, what, where and how they are educated."

   Since release yesterday, the petition has
been inundated with signatures, Ms. Rothschild and other activist are
encouraging those that oppose this ruling to be active - signing as
many national petitions as possible, gathering information and writing
about their experiences on such sites as
