Poll: Can parents make decisions for their children without government interference?

Squidoo has a poll up which asks:

In general, parents have the constitutional right to make decisions for their children without government interference unless there is proof of abuse or neglect. Do you agree or disagree with this view of parental rights?

The possible options are: Strongly agree, Somewhat agree, Somewhat disagree, Strongly disagree and Not sure. 

It gives me great hope that 97% of the 895 votes are Strongly agree.  (Which is how I voted.)

At one level it appears most people recognize in general the government has no business telling parents how to raise their children. 

I do wonder how the 97% with children in governments schools then justify allowing the schools to dictate so much of the lives of both the children and the parents?
