Michelle’s classroom contract (rules written down, the kids sign it as proof they “agreed” to it - wonder who wrote their name and crossed it out; I’m thinking Joy, because Jackson and Hannie don’t write that small/neatly and the spacing seems to fit) stating that school goes from 11-2.
Michelle stating that school starts at 9 am and run past 1 pm to an unspecified time:
Well? Which is it?
As usual, the Duggars are going to be permitted to take up all the “crowd events” and everyone else should just feel lucky to get to watch them.
I don’t know what’s better, the faces on the kids who are like “you couldn’t pay me enough for this,” or Michelle’s OH FUCK NO WE AIN’T DOING THAT SHIT when a spelling contest is mentioned.
1. Add sports to the list of things I guess the kids aren’t allowed to learn about. Though I guess give James props for guessing that a woman plays professional football.
2. Josiah just tried to cheat. Isn’t that the same as lying?
3. Look at the computer dictionary program he’s using. Specifically, look at the first definition for “Ruth” - it’s a Bible-based program. FOR A FRIGGIN’ DICTIONARY/GHETTO ENCYLOPEDIA TYPE THINGS. Jesus fuck. These people are too good for Webster’s??
Michelle actually speaks like a normal human being, however briefly.
Maybe one of those learning experiences should be a vocabulary lesson instead of a helicopter flight. The majority of their “learning experiences” don’t seem to teach them anything whatsoever. At least Jill appreciates the fact that her family gets more opportunities than most. That puts her a step above Josh and her parents.
Halloween is evil, but they’re okay with decorating pumpkins with face.
And why am I not surprised that Dick and Jane is on the curriculum?
I’m pretty sure Justin is the dumbest Duggar. He’s adorable, but the stuff he says just makes me wonder how he remembers to breathe.
Jana is so beautiful! Notice what Joy says here and remember it for the next post. And I hate to say it, but JimBob genuinely made me laugh.
Well, that makes sense, I guess…
Yeah, according to insider information, this woman is lying through gritted teeth.
It’s really not very surprising. Most of these kids are raised by their oldest siblings, not by their parents. With 18 kids and counting, the parents can’t keep tabs on all of them at once. And how are you going to homeschool 18 kids? No matter how much time you dedicate to it, you can’t be adequately educating all of them at once.
And as is well-established, they devote absolutely nothing to their childrens’ education. JimBob has said that college is a waste of time and money. In the very first special, Michelle was teaching the EXACT SAME LESSON to every child, from 16 year old Josh to 5 year old Joy-Anna. Now Michelle doesn’t even bother - Jessa teaches them. A twenty year old with a GED is tasked with educating her siblings. Once they hit double digit ages they’re responsible for their own computer based educations.
So, yeah, it’s no surprise that they’re uneducated - or horribly behaved for that matter; now that Michelle and JimBob can no longer beat them and scream at them, they just ignore them - but it’s fucking inexcusable that this is acceptable by law.
