What laws would defend a parent's right to allow a child to walk home from school despite the school creating a policy to prevent this?

Specifics: I am in Utah. Hopefully that doesn't matter.

Utah has a "free-range parenting" law that prevents parents from being charged with neglect for letting kids walk home from school or otherwise being out alone.(Google "utah free range parenting law".)

This is a charter school. Hopefully that doesn't matter either.

    The school can create such a rule.  You not getting in trouble for the kid walking home a lone isn't the right to have your kids walk home alone.

    According to liberal logic, parents have no right to raise their children properly, only the Dept. of Education can do that.
