Obviously, government regulation will follow religious school choice, and regulation tends to expand over time. However, opposing ”choice” to avoid regulation is shortsighted. The government already holds the right to regulate private schools, and without religious schools to influence a deeper public philosophy, current religious schools are not as safe as they may think. The key to shaping the culture is not to retreat from the fear of regulation, but to engage the public and defend light regulation based on the value of religious schools. This opens the discussion as to which regulations are acceptable and which are not.
