This book advances the idea that American education suffers from three underlying legal defects: the rejection of parental rights, domination by state laws that undermine parental rights, and the devastating effects of an unconstitutional expansion of federal power. The book advocates strengthening parents' inalienable right to direct the education of their children in concert with state laws designed to secure these rights of parents and repeal those laws which hinder parental involvement. Also, the book encourages the idea that the federal government should disentangle itself from education altogether; arguing that its current jurisdiction over education is contrary to the Constitution. Real Choice, Real Freedom is not about revitalizing the failing public school system, but rather raises a more cardinal question: 'Can our Republic maintain real freedom when the civil government uses law to control the education of its youngest citizens?' Consequently, the work calls for the legal disestablisment of government interference, regulation, and control of American education.
