I am an extremely bright (top first from Oxford, PhD, post-doc, research career etc) person and I push my children to acheive their most at school etc, but I cannot see any reason why anyone would choose to home educate. I would go so far as to say it's selfish to keep your child at home and inflict upon them your idea of what they should learn and become. Hope to get some good reasons!

Can you give us the reference of a research publication establishing what you say?

There are very bright people with firsts from any university, as well as those very bright people who did not go to one.

It is not a good idea to push a child: normally, home educators do not do this
