Compulsory Schooling as Preventative Defense
Rocha, Samuel D.
Studies in Philosophy and Education, v32 n6 p613-621 Nov 2013
The question whether compulsory schooling is justifiable or not has been treated at considerable length by critics, defenders, and positions in-between. What these treatments--about paternalism and autonomy and institutionalization and more--have not directly analyzed is a question that precedes the issue of overall justification: the preliminary question of time. Does it matter "when" compulsion takes place? Furthermore, does the timing of compulsion matter to the question of overall justification? I will argue that it does matter, but for reasons not directly related to the question of overall justification.
