My JW niece quit college a short time ago and didn't finish her degree, which she seems very excited about and took on a menial job, which she doesn't too happy about, according to my father. My father (not a JW) is wondering what happened and if it is possibly something "the church" is now promoting.
When my daughter went to a 2 year college I had some negative comments from those in the congo. But I know lots of other JWs who went to college in the late 90s and it was supposed to be a "personal" decision, but not one you would promote to others. Even those who did go to college were made to feel guilty about it. I know there has been a lot of wafffling on this issue, but has there been some "new light" on the subject in recent years? I have been out of it for about 5 years now. One of the reasons I left was because I saw the pressure that was put on the "youth"in the congo. My daughter was a teenager at the time. The kids were being constantly harrassed and put down by the Organization. Some went off the deep end. I can't imagine it's getting any better. So, what's the latest WT stand on education?
