The Moral Argument The moral argument is centered around the existence of objective moral obligations.  Objective morality might be thought of as the working morals of a society that guide normative behavior.

Homeschooling achievement scores on standardized tests consistently show that homeschooled students score competitively with public schools.  Many studies even show that homeschooled students score better than students from public schools.
