The Association endeavours to obtain the recognition of society and the protection of the law for the obligation and concomitant right of parents to educate and school their children in every respect.

The Association recognises that the state has a constitutional obligation towards the child, in cases where the parents are unwilling or unable to educate and school their children according to agreed standards, to assume one or both of these functions.

The Association recognises that parents have the right to delegate the task of schooling to competent teachers.
