Parental rights are the basic sets of rights as defined not only by law, but also culture, society and religion, a parent retains over his children and family, over the choices he makes regarding his children, and over the choices the children make. It is paired with parental responsibility which are the legal obligations a parent must abide by, according to law, culture, society and religion.

From a conservative perspective, parental rights focus on those rights of parents to control the education, upbringing, morality, and discipline of their children which conservatives see being stripped by an insidious combination of the politically correct liberal indoctrination and propaganda by:

  1. United States Department of Education with its Common Core, No Child Left Behind, Race to the Top, Public school culture
  2. Leftist Teachers' unions such as the National Education Association and American Federation of Teachers
  3. Local governments including the Public schools in the United States with the School Board and Child Protective Services
  4. Pervasive Public school values, Professor values, Liberal values, Hollywood values and the San Francisco values Homosexual agenda promoted by a mixture of big government and Hollywood

The issue of parental rights arises most often when public schools indoctrinate students with ideas against the wishes of parents, as in the case of:
