She should spell Arithmetic properly before she complains about Homeshoolers. :)

Homeschooling is a potentially "dangerous" practice that gives parents "authoritarian control" over their children, if you choose to believe a particular Harvard Law School professor.

But there are almost always two sides to a story, and a school choice expert has issued a powerful refutation of the professor's claims.
“The issue is, do we think that parents should have 24/7, essentially authoritarian control over their children from ages zero to 18? I think that’s dangerous,” the professor, Elizabeth Bartholet, told Harvard Magazine for a piece titled, "The Risks of Homeschooling."

“I think it’s always dangerous to put powerful people in charge of the powerless, and to give the powerful ones total authority," she said in an interview for the magazine's May-June issue.
