(p.83) 5 Objections to Autonomy‐Facilitating Education
School Choice and Social Justice

Harry Brighouse (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

Responds to a series of objections to the argument for autonomy‐facilitating education, including objections from parental rights (put by Charles Fried), from religious freedom, from cultural rights, and from neutrality. It discusses further objections, which take the need for autonomy seriously, from William Galston and Shelley Burtt. It contains a detailed discussion of the Yoder versus Wisconsin case, in which Old Order Amish parents successfully claimed the right to withdraw their children from any form of schooling at the age of 14.

Keywords:   Amish, autonomy, Shelley Burtt, cultural rights, Charles Fried, William Galston, neutrality, parental rights, religious freedom, Wisconsin, Yoder
