Below is an argument in favor of home schooling.

From the Daily Herald:
A former Rolling Meadows High School teacher and 1991-92 Illinois Teacher of the Year faces charges that he sexually assaulted a prospective student 43 years ago at a prep school in New Hampshire.

Arthur Peekel, now 74 and living in Palatine, turned himself in on Friday to the Exeter, New Hampshire, police, Exeter Police Chief William Shupe said.

Peekel did not return calls from the Daily Herald on Wednesday and he could not be reached on Friday.

A news release from Shure said Peekel faces two misdemeanor charges of sexual assault. He was released on a $25,000 personal recognizance bond and agreed to surrender his passport, sign a waiver of extradition and have no contact with minors.
