Educator: Some experimental educational programs, based on the principle that children 's first education should take place at home, instruct parents in how to be their child's "first teacher." The school perfomance of the children in these programs is better than average. This shows that these programs are successful and should be expanded.

Which one of the follovving, if true, most weakens the educator's argument?

(A) Not all small children enjoy being taught by their parents.
(B) Most of the parents participating in the programs have prior experience as educators.
(C) Surveys show that most parents would approve expanding the programs.
(D) The cost of expanding the programs has not been precisely determined.
(E) Some children who did not participate in the programs performed exceptionally well in school.

Based upon better school performance of the children in these programs, the conclusion is that "home education" works.

Option B weakens this because it says that most of the parents participating in the programs have prior experience as educators. So, if this is the case, then it means that these children, while being schooled at home, were actually educated in a way similar to the education imparted in schools.

Hence, on the basis of the premise, we cannot conclude that "home education" works.
