The Duggar family homeschools their children. Michelle has always homeschooled the family’s 19 kids. She’s had the help of the older kids, as well as Jessa’s husband, Ben Seewald. The kids that still live at home are still being homeschooled. It’s been assumed that the grown kids will also homeschool their kids. And, it looks like most of them have gone in that direction.
But, as TV Shows Ace reported, Jill and Derick Dillard are sending their kids down a different path. They previously documented their homeschooling journey via social media. But, according to Derick, that’s come to an end because they have “homeschooled for almost 5 years, but now he’s [Israel] old enough for school.”
The Dillard family revealed that they are sending their five-year-old, Israel, to kindergarten in the fall. This has gotten quite the response from TLC fans. Some are cheering on the Dillards as they find what works best for them. Others are criticizing them for sending their kids to school with all of the “dangers” and “worldliness”.
Now, Duggar fans are curious about which of the rest of the kids in the family will go to public school.
Which Duggar grandkids will go to public school?
As mentioned, it’s the norm for the family to homeschool. The majority of the grown kids with school-age kids are homeschooling. Josh and Anna are homeschooling their six children, but not all of them are of school age.
Jessa is homeschooling her older kids. Right now, she and Ben have three kids together. And, Jill and Derick previously homeschooled Israel. It’s likely that they will continue to homeschool Samuel for a few more years.
None of the other children are old enough to go to school yet, so it’s hard to know what will really happen. Duggar fans agree that it seems like all of the other grown kids with children of their own will homeschool. Fans think it’s possible that John and Abbie send their kids to public school. Abbie previously shared that she’d like to return to work as a nurse. Plus, she and John likely won’t have a large family at this rate.
Fans think Jinger and Jeremy are the least likely to homeschool
Jinger and Jeremy Vuolo moved to Los Angeles, California. Fans can see that the couple is a little bit more modern than the rest of the Duggar family. They only have one child, and she will turn two in July. They have yet to announce another pregnancy. This isn’t a huge gap between their kids, but it’s not common in the Duggar family. Jinger also wears pants instead of dresses and has been spotted in a tank top. She has dyed her hair. The list goes on. It’s worth noting that the couple hasn’t chosen to live risky lives or do anything out of the ordinary. It’s just not normal for the Duggar family.
For this reason, fans have started to wonder if Jinger and Jeremy will send Felicity to school. There’s a chance that she would attend a Christian school because of the family’s religious background. But, if they are having their kids farther apart in age, it might be easier for Jinger to homeschool Felicity.
Fans still have to wait a few years to see what the Duggar grandkids’ education looks like. Do you think any of them, aside from Jill and Derick’s kids, are going to public school? Share your thoughts below.
