Back Cover -- 

This book documents the inherently flawed nature of America’s public school system as currently structured.  Contemporary recommendations for correcting the system invariably treat symptom rather than the inherent problems of government control over parental and religious rights.

The book documents that:

  1. education is a religious endeavor and that freedom of religion is guaranteed in the United States,

  2. parents have an inalienable right to raise their children free from government constraints on education,

  3. civil government is to protect and not deprive citizens of their inalienable rights,

  4. the educational history of our country affirms that education has always had a religious function,

  5. recent interpretations of the First and Fourteenth Amendments are both misguided and opposite from their original meanings,

  6. federal control of education and education taxation is outside the legitimate authority of the U.S. Constitution, and

  7. government control of education at federal, state, and local levels is inherently tyrannical.

Addressed in separate chapters, the above-mentioned issues, individually and collectively, build a compelling case for the disestablishment of government control and the return of parental control to education.  To quote James Madison, government should relate to education in the same way as it does to religion -- not to "intermeddle" with it.

William F. Cox, Jr., Ph.D. has been an educator for more than twenty-five years.  He has published widely and lectured internationally in the field of education.  Dr. Cox has held various leadership positions in religion and education, and has received numerous honors, including selection as Teacher of the Year at Regents University.  A decorated military veteran, he is a staunch advocate for citizens’ rights in parenting, education, and religion.  In this book, he argues for the protection and restoration of inalienable rights as affirmed in the U.S. Declaration of Independence and as purchased throughout history at great human sacrifice.
