Differing views of education in the JW cult

    I'm still angry about missing out on an education.

    Back in the '80s there was a kid in our congregation who had an unbelieving father. The father "forced" the kid to go to college. We all felt so sorry for him. I'll bet he's glad he obeyed his father.

    Back in 2005 (or maybe 04 - I'm not sure), a boy in our congregation graduated high school at the top of his class. He wanted to go to college, and his parents (both were dubs) fully supported that decision. The parents got so much grief from the elders (and probably the CO) that they haven't attended meetings since then - not even the Memorial. The young man did go to college, got an engineering degree, and now has a very good job.
