Families in Kansas say a plan to have first lady Michelle Obama deliver a high school graduation speech next month will politicize the event and create a scarcity of tickets.

Obama is slated to speak at a graduation ceremony in Topeka on May 17, school district officials announced last Thursday.

The event is also meant to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the landmark 1954 Supreme Court Brown v. Board of Education decision that found school segregation unconstitutional.

A high school senior started an online petition last week to urge the school district to reconsider plans to host Obama. The Associated Press reports more than 1,200 people have signed it.
