separation of school and state

Jeff Jacoby over at the Boston Globe has issued a "call for separation of school and state." he makes an oft-heard point that
Parker v. Hurley, in other words, was not just a victory for gay-marriage advocates or a defeat for Judeo-Christian traditionalists. It was a reminder that on many of the most controversial subjects of the day, public schools do not speak for the whole community.
Neal McClusky wrote an analysis on the subject, Why We Fight: How Public Schools Cause Social Conflict. loss of parental control in education is another example of modern society's devolution into might makes right tyranny of the majority socialism.
rather than bringing people together, public schooling often forces people of disparate backgrounds and beliefs into political combat.
