  1. Robert Kunzman (2012). Education, Schooling, and Children's Rights: The Complexity of Homeschooling. Educational Theory 62 (1):75-89.
    By blurring the distinction between formal school and education writ large, homeschooling both highlights and complicates the tensions among the interests of parents, children, and the state. In this essay, Robert Kunzman argues for a modest version of children's educational rights, at least in a legal sense that the state has the duty and authority to enforce. At the same time, however, it is important to retain a principled distinction between schooling and education—not only to protect children's basic educational rights, (...)

  4. Robert Kunzman (2003). Rejoinder to Nucci's "Morality, Religion and Public Education in Pluralist Democracies". Journal of Moral Education 32 (3):271-273.
    Three rebuttals are offered here: my argument applies not only to monotheistic religious students; the relationship between God and the good is far more complex and contested than Nucci claims; and I do not contend that religious students rely entirely on religious dictates in their ethical thinking, but rather that the influences are likely to be a mixture of religion and personal judgement.
