(Recall our thread from a few years ago as reviewed and extended in
Arnold's blog post,

Consider along the same lines, the distinction drawn in Anthony Appiah's
Ethicist column in today's NYT Magazine between "to home-school" (or the
participle "home-schooled" and nominal "home schooling" derived therefrom)
and (the predictably less specific) "to school at home":

The results of home schooling depend on the quality of the schooling. (And
no, being schooled at home, as many schoolchildren are these days, isn’t
the same as being home-schooled.)
