This document presents eight statements representative of positions taken by participants in a conference held to explore the relationship between the state and non-public schools. A historical perspective on the role of the parents in education, a lawyer's case for parental responsibility in education, parent involvement and parent rights are explored. Issues of educational freedom, religious liberty, state interference with parental preferences in education and family choice of educational services are also discussed. The statements conclude with an address by Dr. Joseph M. Cronin on the role of the state in supervising and facilitating public and non-public schools in Illinois. (Author/RH)
