If someone has a basic education themselves then they can teach their child. School harms children as well as helps them and for an awful lot of children it removes their hunger to learn. Home education gives them a chance to figure it out for themselves with a bit of help, to focus on their areas of interests etc
I'm sure home education is ideal, given the right parents; with the wrong parents it would be disastrous. Schools may not be perfect, Anya, but at least they provide a better education than than most children would ever get if they didn't exist.
