This is a HuffPost article, so I can't vouch for everything it says, but it does give voice to the fears of those opposed to home schooling and to private schooling in general. "For the past three years, we've traveled to more than 20 homeschool conferences," writes Heather Stark. She creates "curriculum kits that use the stories of notable women in history to teach girls about their worth and potential."
