Wisconsin vs. Yoder
By: Riley Hill
The Amish family's first and fourteenth amendment rights were being violated. This case established the free exercise clause of first amendment and incorporation doctrine in the 14th amendment.
Amish Family (the Yoders) sends their children to public school through the 8th grade
Don't want them to attend public school after the 8th grade but teach them their amish ways
The case was brought to the supreme court and ruled that the Yoders are able to homeschool their children
This case decision could apply today in an instance where an adult chooses to home school their children due to any religious or personal reasoning. This court case was considered landmark because it established parental control over education
