Jenelle Evans is opening up about a recent difficult decision. After a tough few months, she revealed that she has decided to homeschool her three kids Jace, Kaiser, and Ensley. Last fall, Jace repeatedly ran away from home and was temporarily in the care of Child Protective Services after claiming that Jenelle’s husband David Eason assaulted him. Jenelle finally regained custody of Jace in February 2024, and not too long after that announced that she and David were heading for divorce. Shortly thereafter, she claimed that someone tried to break into her house, which made her feel unsafe. It seems like all of these things have led to her deciding to keep her kids close to home.

It seems like a sudden decision.

She announced her decision to homeschool in a video on Instagram this week. “So basically, I have pulled my kids out of school for the rest of the school year and I’m going to be home-schooling them. Why? Because I found out their school is not safe. Not going to go into detail about that,” she said.

Jenelle has a plan to keep them ‘safe.’

So far, she claims she’s been taking the kids on field trips every day to places like the aquarium and children’s museum, where she will teach them “about science, gravity, waterfalls, tornados, weather.”

“I just want to keep them safe. I want to keep them at home. I want to keep my eye on them and I think that’s just what’s best for them right now,” she shared.

She sees homeschooling as a viable option for now.

“Life has been way too stressful for us and I feel like they need a break, so we’re going to do homeschooling. It’s going to be fun,” she explained. The video then cuts to scenes of them at the children’s museum, engaging with hands-on activities. At the end of the day, Jenelle seemed pleased with how things went.

“I personally learn better hands-on. I don’t know about you guys, but yeah. It was great,” she said.

Her followers don’t seem fully into the idea.

Many fans didn’t hold back their opinions on her decision.

“How do you homeschool when you do porn out of your home?” one person asked.

“Those are field trips not schooling, [they’re] gonna fall behind,” another person commented.

Another person wrote: “You found out their school was ‘not safe’ and took them out in the blink of an eye … yet you kept them in a home that was not safe for all these years??? The math is just not mathing.”

Others seemed to have nothing but love for her.

“As a former homeschool mom, I am very proud of you,” one person praised. “So many in your comments have a distorted idea of education.”

“She said until the summer they have 30 days until summer she didn’t say she was doing it next year y’all give the girl a break,” another commenter replied.
