A seems to be correct. I think however is used here as an adverb.

"much parents" in A does not sound good to me.

I think it is between D and E. I'll choose D.

As in E, "Even though the parents in Johannson's district agree the instruction of moral values ..." I feel "that" would be required after "agree" here..

I'd go for A
B/w A and B, A's form is more concise and does denote the contrast required and which is implied by the second half of the sentence.
C) very wordy and the contrast is not properly established
D) "agree for" --> wrong idiom. "agree with/that" would have been right
E) "agree" alone is not complete. Relative pronoun "with" or "that" is missing

agree for the instruction of the moral value.........

D starts well but ends in a weird way.

Himmm...very good points guys..

But can you say "much parents"? I though "much" is used for uncountable things..And parents can be counted..

"however much" does not denote the concept of numbers. It is an expression which means "no matter how much"

idiomatic usage:

however much + subject(noun) + verb. this expresses intensity not numbers.
eg: However much I speak to him, I cannot convince him.

Interesting. I actually went for (C) because of the word 'among' as I thought parents (more than 2) need the use of among.

OA is indeed A. Good job guys! Initially I chose B, which is wrong because

"Despte the fact that ... may"

Well, if they may, it isn't a fact.
