Children are a thorny issue for any political philosophy. Do children have agency and are they truly rational actors? If not what status should they have? Are they the property of their parents, dependents of the state, or something in between? This then leads to a host of questions regarding the values taught in publicly funded schools and the extent to which parents have discretion in disciplining their children. Come join Wesleyan Students for a Free Society tomorrow night to discuss these questions and many more.
