Parents' Rights and Educational Provision
Marples, Roger
Studies in Philosophy and Education, v33 n1 p23-39 Jan 2014
Legitimate parental interests need to be distinguished from any putative rights parents "qua" parents may be said to possess. Parents have no right to insulate their children from conceptions of the good at variance with those of their own. Claims to the right to faith schools, private schools, home-schooling or to withdraw a child from any aspect of the curriculum designed to enhance a child's capacity for autonomous decision-making, are refuted.
