HAT Forum: educational opting out

HAT Forum
Saturday 21 March, 11:00-1:00
519 Church St.
Topic: opting out of mandatory education

Should parents have the right to withdraw students from study of topics of which they disapprove, if those subjects are compulsory? Examples could include sex education and evolution; any other potential issues? On what grounds might we as a society justify allowing it, and with what limitations? What about non-curricular issues, such as vaccination?
