Why a Parental Rights Amendment Isn't Such a Good Idea

Why do so many people have fundamental misconceptions about the fact that the United States Constitution limits the authority of the United States Government, rather than limiting the rights of The People to those specifically enumerated? The recently proposed parental rights amendment is likely to result in legislative attempts to codify and limit what is now a broad and fundamental right, which has been recognized by the United States Supreme Court. See Pierce v. Society of Sisters, 268 U.S. 510, 534-35 (1925).

Here's a much longer analysis by Home Education Magazine of the folly of this proposal.
