LDS Homeschoolers Are “In the World But Not Of The World.”

I just got a lecture about my kids disobeying LDS church leaders, who say we must public school so that we can be “in the world, but not of the world.” This person said that the person giving the General Conference talk said that we must be part of the public education system to be “living in this world.”

Joyce Kinmont says the church believes in parental choice on the matter

  1. You were just “lectured” by someone? Haha. I guess I’m too scary to get many homeschooling lectures!

    Really, though, it’s funny that anyone thinks sending a child to a government-funded, curriculum-mandated, age-segregated building for seven hours a day, 180 days per year, for 13 years is “in the world.”

  2. “In many places it is literally not safe physically for youngsters to go to school. And in many schools – and it’s becoming almost generally true – it is spiritually unsafe to attend public schools.” -Boyd K. Packer

    That is just one of several quotes by church leaders that could be argued in favor of homeschooling. Homeschoolers are just as much in the world as their public schooled peers. The world happens outside the classroom too. The difference is that we choose to give our children a physically and spiritually safe learning environment.
