The McIntyres are accused of failing to teach their children educational basics because they were waiting to be transported to heaven with the second coming of Jesus Christ. Sauce
State lawmakers in Arkansas this year repealed a law mandating that home-school students take nationally recognized standardized tests, and Utah removed academic requirements from its home-school students in 2014. Pennsylvania, Iowa, New Hampshire and Minnesota have also recently moved to relax home-school standards. Sauce

I was raised a Jehovah Witness, and was not allowed to pursue any education. I had to go back to school as an adult. It had a terrible impact on my life. The usual Armaggedon is coming, so no need for school crap. That was in 1975. I really feel sorry for any child not encouraged to learn all they can.
On the other side of the coin, I home schooled my daughter, she graduated early, in just 1 1/2 years. She just turned 18 and already has 2 yrs of college under her belt.
