"So why not use it to test the premise that an insular, educative family can be a refuge and a moral counterweight to the ubiquitous and inevitable intellectual tendencies of our time"

Indeed, and one of the many reasons why, more than 20 years ago, we made the decision to educate at home. And so far, it's working for us as a family - and quite well I might add (2 children have almost completed engineering degrees and 2 others are doing well academically and are senior NCOs in Air Cadets).

Great article. By far, this is the most important point of the whole article. No one has the right to teach a child anything against the parents wishes.
