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

The following was also in a post that Blogger kept throwing back into draft mode. I've deleted the original post and created this new post. Hopefully Blogger will stop getting confused.

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 855 votes are Strong agree

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?

Hat tip: Tiffany on Facebook.
