Compulsory Education Violates Freedom


The law in Utah notes that parents have a “fundamental liberty interest” regarding the care of their children—including their children. And yet, Utah also enforces compulsory education laws that violate that liberty.

To be consistent in its recognition of parental stewardship, the law in Utah must be amended to have education be a voluntary, freely obtained opportunity, rather than a forced obligation under threat of fines and jail time.
