“The answer is found in the nature of corporate servanthood. When a school establishes itself to serve parents by teaching certain subjects to the kids, this does not mean that any given family has complete authority over the school. What happens is that the school clearly notifies the families of a given community what service they intend to offer to them. Those parents who want that service may avail themselves of it, and those who do not will not. But parental authority does not mean that one family has the right to demand another service entirely. If a man started up a Burger King to help parents feed their kids, parental authority does not mean the parents have the right to come in and order a Big Mac” (The Paideia of God, pp. 30-31).
