Amy just announced on her page that Jacob will have homeschooling the rest of the year.
If you haven't kept up in the last week (Matt and Amy posted on their public Fan Facebook accounts) Jacob was expelled from the school prominently featured through 6 seasons on LPBW. All 4 Roloff kids had attended Faith Bible.
Matt Roloff's wording on his website was that Jacob had "struggled" this year and had "lost interest in school". He stated that Faith Bible has grade standards and if students don't meet the requirements they cannot continue at the school. Matt and Amy expressed anger and frustration at the school for making this decision a month and a half from graduation. Matt said they were frustrated at the school's lack of flexibility.
On Matt's Facebook page this Saturday, he lashed out at Faith Bible with some verbal shots. Matt said Jacob was a brand new and better person. Matt stated Jacob can be the free spirit that he is, and Matt wrote that he "never liked that school".
He also agreed with a fan that told him the problem at her son's school was a "screwball teacher". Matt responded that he thought that might be the exact problem at Jacob's school and there was something definitely broken at the old school. (by the way, Molly gets straight A's at Faith Bible and just traveled to Haiti on a Mission trip with Faith Bible during March break).
Matt said Jacob was very excited to join the engineering club at his new school.
Today, Amy just announced that Jacob will be home schooled for the remainder of the year.
Amy Roloff: Oh the plans this week. Jacob and homeschooling the rest of the year - so much better for him, cleaning my office and Women's Build week for Habitat for Humanity. A house for a single mom and kids. Couldn't imagine spending a weekend any other way. What's your week like?
Matt Roloff: Just picked Jacob up from 4 hours of independent academic testing. It's been at least 2 years since I've seen him this happy !! Apparently he can go straight to high school in the fall.. But Amy and I going to homeschool the kid to his maximum potential... Molly Jo here comes Jacob at your heals :).
Edit: Amy Roloff added this on April 27.
Amy Roloff: "I'm so proud of my Jacob and how great he is handling this transition in his life. Matt and I are so 100% behind him. He just went through 4 hours of testing the other day and we went to get the input today. He did great. A few areas he needs to work on so four days a week he is in 'school'. He'll be even more ready for High school. He's a good kid. Love my Big Guy"
