Rights, Equality, and the Ethics of School Policy.
Diorio, Joseph A.
Curriculum Inquiry, v16 n2 p147-78 Sum 1986

Dworkin's theory of rights supports this perspective. Governmental imposition of uniform schooling practices on unwilling persons is an illegitimate devaluation of some citizens' lives.
