Marcus Aurelius writes in his meditations:
From my great-grandfather, not to have frequented public schools, and to have had good teachers at home, and to know that on such things a man should spend liberally.
Considering that men of erudition had figured this out nearly two thousand years ago, it’s appalling that anyone is still willing to consider this a matter for reasonable debate.
The public schools may have the today’s experts on their side. The homeschools are supported by the deeds and words of mankind’s greatest thinkers. On which side do you wish to place your bet?
