Parents should be trusted with the powers of choice and self-determination
How much responsibility should be given to parents vs. the state?
We should create and live within a "critically conscious democracy"
What things should have a greater amount of input and what things do
we need to take a second look at?

included; This can be deemed and considered an issue or concern regarding
