Abstract

Many within the public school establishment dance within unrestrained enthusiasm on the grave of parental rights. But, we respectfully submit, they celebrate a pyrrhic victory. Left unremedied, the defeat of parents' rights in this context would prove not only harmful for parents and students, but would also damage public schooling in two interconnected ways.
