Parental rights?


It has always been my opinion that the parents had the ultimate responsibility when it came to the care, custody, education and control of their children. I was taught that this was one of the implied rights in the US Constitution which has been upheld in numerous US Supreme Court decisions1 Yet in todays society the schools seem to be taking over and insisting that they are the ones responsible for determining what a child can read, what they can eat, what moral values a child should embrace, and even extending to the teaching of sex from the time a child enters kindergarten and extending to young adulthood (12th grade). This process reduces parental rights to little more than that of a baby-sitter between school sessions.

Do you think this trend is correct, or proper, or right? What can be done to maintain the rights of the parents when the government says one thing in the courts but acts contrary to the government position in the schools?

Re: Parental rights?


I think the Parent has the ultimate right to teach their child.
I also believe that the schools and parents must work together to make what the child learns at school, go hand in hand with what is taught at home.
I am a firm believer in PTA [sign in to see URL] parents conferences, and any decisions that the school is planning on making about the curriculum taught to the [sign in to see URL] to be announce publicly and even if necessary, voted on by the public/parents...

Re: Parental rights?


What started me thinking about this was the new sex-ed curriculum being proposed in Montana were children in kindergarten (or preschool) would be taught about sexual relationships as early as age 4!

Much better I think would be packets sent home to the parents with suggested guidelines and goals on what a child should be comfortable with. If taken away from the schools and placed back with the parents such packets would clearly show a parent what the government schools think is important but would still leave the choices with the parents on how they want to raise the child...

I [sign in to see URL] packets should be sent home to the parents. But Sex ed does not need to be started at the age of 4! emoticon

I know my son's elementary school started it I believe in 5th [sign in to see URL] would have been 11 and we had a form where we could "opt out" after reading what the curriculum [sign in to see URL] all that would have [sign in to see URL] to have made him the laughing stalk of all the other kids..

But many did opt out, as they taught their children differently..

Re: Parental rights?


I can certainly see why some parents choose to home school. They want to be more in control of what their children are taught.
