I can see that being educated at home would be good for some children.
This sentence is taken from CAMBRIDGE GRAMMAR FOR IELTS. Is 'would' used to refer to the past situation or to show cautiousness, please?
There are many meanings of "would", the past tense of "will" being one of them.
I'd say "would" in the sentence means "probably or likely" due to the statement being not proven, as distinct from "certainly".
