Golden Gate University Law Review


Roxana M. Smith


The Ninth Circuit reaffirmed in Fields v. Palmdale School District that the constitutional "due process right of parents to make decisions regarding their children's education does not" authorize "individual parents to enjoin school boards from providing information" deemed appropriate in the performance of their educational function. The court further held that the parental right of privacy over the upbringing of children does not entitle parents to prohibit public schools from providing curricula about sex which the schools' boards deem educationally appropriate.
