Parents’ educational rights and duties

This chapter attempts to establish a policy on parents’ educational rights and duties which citizens of a democratic state at a certain level of economic well-being would want to adopt. This policy, it is suggested, will have two linked aspects. First, citizens will lay down certain guidelines on parents’ rights and duties. Second, complementing these rights and duties, and in consequence of them, certain duties towards the education of young members will be established which will devolve on the whole community.
