Virtual Event | Parents, Public Education, and the First Amendment

This event will premiere on this page at 10:00 a.m. EST, Friday, January 7. Register for the event here.

For nearly two years, millions of parents have watched as their children engaged in mandatory remote learning. Rising dissatisfaction with politicized curricula provoked opposition from parents, prompting some politicians to bluntly declare that parents should have no role in determining what children are taught in public schools. But if education is speech, can government officials compel what is taught and not taught?

Join Hudson Institute’s Harold Furchtgott-Roth and Professor Philip Hamburger for a discussion on the constitutional frailties of public education.
