Restricted Liberty, Parental Choice and Homeschooling
Merry, Michael S.; Karsten, Sjoerd
Journal of Philosophy of Education, v44 n4 p497-514 Nov 2010
In this paper the authors carefully study the problem of liberty as it applies to school choice, and whether there ought to be restricted liberty in the case of homeschooling. They examine three prominent concerns that might be brought against homeschooling, viz., that it aggravates social inequality, worsens societal conflict and works against the best interests of children. To examine the tensions that occur between parental liberty, children's interests, and state oversight, the authors consider the case of homeschooling in the Dutch context.
