Democratic Education written by Amy Gutmann

Our parental interests are to some extent independent of our role as democratic citizens, and hence the emphasis of moral education within the family is likely to be quite different from that within schools.

I cannot understand...what does 'to some extent means..

    to some extent = to some degree, partly, in part, somewhat.

    The sentence needs commas:

    Our parental interests are, to some extent, independent of our role as democratic citizens,
