Comparing and Contrasting Yoder with Ginsburg At face value the cases of Yoder and Ginsburg appear quite different to me After all one deals with an Amish parent who took her children out of highschool for religious reasons and the other case deals with a Luncheonette owner who sold a 16 year old boy questionable materials While each case deals on its own with differing state laws and statutes they come together in the effort to answer the question how much authority does the state possess over other peoples children The decisions in Yoder and Ginsburg are quite conflicting Regarding Yoder the court decides that if your religion conflicts with your highschool then you dont have to go This generally puts religion before education In Ginsburg the State comes out victorious and presents itself as the end all authority over what kind of material a child of 16 can see or read This decision paints the state as having supreme authority over parents yet in Yoder the parents are the authority over the State and the Board of Education Essentially in Yoder the child is the victor in a sense The state hands over its authority to the parents and loses the upper hand In this case the child is the victor especially because she did not want to go to school In the Ginsburg decision a minor is deemed still a minor when it comes to obscenity and the state holds on to their authority The point is that when we are dealing with something as important as school and something as nonconsequential as incredibly soft pornography the court allows a child to not look at either at a book or a Playboy It seems almost incredulous to me at least I might be alone though Can it be said then that religion comes first over education Isnt our country founded on
