The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals …. ruled that the right of parents “does not extend beyond the threshold of the school door.”
Phyllis Schlafly at Townhall writes on court decisions about parental rights. Three courts have decided that students may be/can be/should be asked questions which invade their privacy, lead them to false conclusions, and generally have nothing whatsoever to do with school.
According to the 9th Circuit court your rights as a parent end at the school door. Which means that your children’s rights end there too.
And there’s another new constitutional right.
In Crowley v. McKinney, the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled against the parent, saying that the school has a constitutional right of “the autonomy of educational institutions.” The parent had appealed to the Supreme Court to recognize the “settled law” of Pierce v. Society of Sisters, which in 1925 recognized the constitutional right of parents to control the education of their own children.
Schools have a constitutional right to control the education of the children within them. New stuff. And terrifying.
What will they teach your child next that isn’t true? What will they teach your child next that isn’t age appropriate? What will they teach your child next that violates all your principles?
I don’t know. You don’t either.
