Kylie Jenner admits that she only does ‘3 or 4 hours’ of ‘home-schooling’ a day


Here are some new photos of Kylie Jenner and her dad Bruce at last night’s All Sports Film Festival in Hollywood. I usually avoid covering Kylie and Kendall at all costs – it’s not any particular indictment against them or against the people who cover them, I just don’t want to give in to Lucifer’s Homegirl on this one particular issue. I will help Lucifer promote the older Kardashian girls, but not the little ones. That’s my usual standard. That being said, I have followed the insanity of Kylie and Kendall’s “education”.

Several years ago, Kris Jenner began talking about taking the girls out of high school because… I don’t know, she needed to get them trained for the stroll early, I guess. Then came word (in 2012) that Kris wanted them to “focus on their careers” as celebutantes and started homeschooling them. The rumors came back in September, with some sources claiming that the home-schooling issue is a big reason why Bruce Jenner walked out on Kris. Kylie, the younger girl (at 16) is still required by law to have some semblance as an education, right? Or is California’s Department of Education all “#YOLO” too? Probably. So, Kylie was being interviewed by Ryan Seacrest and she admitted that she’s only “in (home) school” for three to four hours a day:

As if being homeschooled isn’t perk enough, Kylie Jenner admitted on Tuesday morning that she only does three or four hours of school a day, and has her interview.

The 16-year-old highschooler called in to Ryan Seacrest‘s morning radio show “from school” and told the American Idol host that her day consists of a little bit of education, and a lot of work.

“How many hours of school do you go to a day?” Seacrest asked.

“I do like three to four,” she said, sounding less-than-enthused. “[Then] I usually work. I’m pretty busy all day.”

As Radar exclusively reported in September, it was Kris Jenner‘s decision to let Kylie and sister Kendall drop out of high school and pursue home schooling that placed a wedge between the Kardashian matriarch and her estranged hubby, Bruce.

“[Kylie and Kendall] had been attending a very elite private school until last year. The girls were constantly missing school because of business commitments including promotional appearances, and photo shoots. Bruce was absolutely adamant that the girls not drop out of school in order to be home schooled,” the insider told Radar.

“This all played out on the reality show, but what viewers didn’t see was the fights between Bruce and Kris. Bruce always wanted the girls to go to college, whereas Kris doesn’t place an emphasis on education. Kris has told the girls they are only young once and they could always go back to school later. She doesn’t want them to miss out on lucrative deals because they are in school.”

While every state has different home schooling guidelines, most follow the rule that student attendance must be equivalent to public school student attendance — 186 days per year, at 1116 hours total. If Kylie and Kendall are schooled for the same number of days as a regular school year, then they are falling far behind with hours, only clocking in a maximum of 744 for the year.

However, the states that actually require that home school attendance, don’t actually require anyone to keep track of it, which creates a large loophole for homeschooled students.

[From Radar]

When I was 16… I had a part-time job, working 10-15 hours a week after school. I went to school all day, worked a four to six hour shift maybe, then came home and did homework. I was focused on getting into college. Plus, I remember really liking my classes that year (AP English, AP American History, stuff like that). I think my GPA my junior year was like 3.75. My point? I don’t know. We can debate the “padding” in typical high school education, but I highly doubt that three to four hours a day is enough for Kylie Jenner to be a well-informed member of society. Of course, I highly doubt that she’s even telling the truth about those “three to four hours”. And that’s not on her – that’s on Lucifer’s Homegirl. Kris will not stop until all of her daughters are the most vapid, trashy famewhores in the world.

    My question is what the hell kind of homeschooling is she doing? I live in Michigan, where there are NO regulations on homeschooling, and am doing online school now–I have to do at least six hours a day. So what is she doing?

    • mayamae says:

      I would be surprised if she is even doing the 3-4 hours she claims. Education means very little in that family. I think it was Papa Kardashian that influenced Kourtney and Rob.

      I refuse to give Bruce Jenner credit for supposedly pushing for these two to continue their education. He is an enabler of the worst sort, and he had full knowledge of Kris’ mothering skills, and still apparently gave her carte blanche. I hate how he gets portrayed as hen-pecked and down trodden, when he’s an active partner of the fame whoring.

      • lisa says:

        doesnt home schooling imply an adult is home with them or is that just for poor people? because PMK aint got time for that

  2. aims says:

    I have a feeling education isn’t a high priority in this family.

  3. Mylene - Montreal says:

    “i work , i’m busy all day” .. HAHAHAHAHAHA

  4. mj says:

    Actually, if you’re concentrating and getting something out of it, four hours per day is probably about right. There was so much fluff and bs at my high school–and I did take AP courses and college classes as well. By senior year I’d cut out as much of my day as possible for study time. Think about it–in college, when do you have more than four hours’ worth of class per day? I mean I guess it works differently if you take night classes or go to a community college, but at a traditional liberal arts school, the answer is, not unless you need to hustle with the credits to graduate. And high school was pretty worthless for me–just a stepping stone for getting into college.
    I definitely realize this is one myopic experience and that, for other people, packing in those hours was key to their success.

    • Lucy Goosey says:

      I dropped out of high school at 14 and was later “homeschooled.” By homeschooled, I mean my parents ordered the stuff through the mail and I educated myself since my mom did not see why I had to go to school in the first place. I am now three weeks from college graduation (yay!) with a 3.5 GPA and I deal with a constant state of feeling impatient with other people who can not spell or use grammar, do not know basic facts, and have little ability to think critically having been told by teachers and television what to think.
      To make a long story short, an education is what you make of it and the student who is most motivated to go to college and make something meaningful of their lives will always get the most out of it. I agree that it seems like public high school classes involve a lot of unneccessary fluff and high school is just a stepping stone to college.
      That said, I highly doubt that the Jenners are learning anything that will benefit any career but being a professional famewhore:(

    • & says:

      I’m with you on this. There really is a lot of fluff. One of my nieces did her academics online while she was in ballet school. I don’t think she ever spent much time on it. On the other hand my twin nieces started this new school run by the University of Texas, and they attend from 8am to noon, but they also removed all the fluff. I don’t think it’s necessarily for everyone, but it does work for many people. Their parents find additional avenues for the arts. They’re really creative and have managed to find all these different (free) programs for the girls to attend for the arts that ensure they end up with scholarships. They get to learn how to play a different instrument every year. Anyway, that’s off topic, but it sounds like so much fun.

    • MrsB says:

      I have to agree with you. I was homeschooled and went to school and 3-4 hours of one on one attention is more productive than sitting in class with 1 teacher and 20 students for 8 hours a day.

    • Lemon says:

      I guess it’s all relative. I had a senior schedule of all AP courses and no lunch. Certainly more than 4 hours per day. Also, I think the assumption is that the home-school kids are focused on their schooling for the several hours a day they are working on it, but I would doubt this is true for most people.

      I work with a fair number of home school families. It is very common to have these three or four hour days (often just the morning, for instance), as well as to have extremely long summer breaks. The parents justify it by “they are learning so much more than they would at school” although that is certainly not apparent by talking to these kids versus my patients who are in public or private school.

      • lisa says:

        that was my schedule too. when people say they cut out all the fluff, i dont know what that means. i didnt have anything to cut out or that could be described as fluff, especially after i gave up lunch period for a second science.

    • jwoolman says:

      By high school, most of your real productive time on school work (other than science labs) is really the study time. The total takes more than three hours a day, no matter how focused the “lessons” are. I doubt that she is doing the kind of reading, writing, math and science problem solving that she needs for a real education on her demon mother’s watch. And it’s not that easy to go back to school later. She will probably be unprepared for college and unwilling to take the time for it. Plus she’s missing other aspects of high school that were probably important to her, and she’s not being around adults and other kids who value education and friends who are looking forward to college.

    • Nina W says:

      I would be surprised if you can get a quality high school education with only 3-4 hours a day dedicated to it. As mentioned by others attending school is not just class room time but is also study and homework time. Kendall and Kylie are being deprived of the opportunity to grow as individuals and it is shameful and disgusting. People need to develop internally as well as externally and no amount of money or fame will ever make up for the want of cultivation of mind. PMK is a terrible person and a horrible mother.

    • Bridget says:

      You’re forgetting that the classroom isnt the only place schoolwork is done -there should also be a chunk of time spent studying additional material and doing homework. And I dont know about you, but when I was in college each hour in the classroom had at least an hour or two of homework a day. There’s an expectation that you are reading and studying extensively. So, your comparison really isn’t approptiate. 3-4 hours per day is truly a minescule amount.

  5. Lucybelle says:

    That’s not abnormal. My sister homeschools my niece and nephew and that’s about how much time they spend on school per day. When you don’t have 25 other kids that need the teacher’s attention you can get things done quickly.

    • Suzy from Ontario says:

      Exactly! We homeschooled for a number of years and you can get through so much so easily without the crowd management most teachers have to go through. It’s amazing how much you can get through! When my boys went back to public school both were skipped two grades because they were so far ahead and we only did about 3-4 hours a day.

    • hunter says:

      Yup, my cousin homeschools her kids and this is correct.

      People don’t understand this enough, without 25 other kids of varying levels of ability, the lessons can be taught much more quickly.

      • Cazzee says:

        A friend of ours has her 10-year-old daughter in a charter school, and part of the school’s requirements is that parents volunteer in the classroom.

        She says that she had no idea students were so poorly behaved, and that 50% of the teacher’s time is spent on classroom managment. Fifty percent!

        Highschool is different, there’s lab classes and other things that just take more time – however for younger kids, 3-4 hours a day would be enough to cover the material.

    • Persephone69 says:

      Same… I homeschool my two girls (6 and 9 years) and that’s all we need to get our lessons done too, if they want to spend more time after that on studying, reading, art, etc.. then they can and often do. Art is my older girls passion and she spends a good part of the day either drawing, sculpting or working on the comic book she’s creating. They also both love Minecraft and can play all they want after everything is done.

    • kay says:


      I home school my grade 7 and grade 1 children.
      we do max 2 hours a day, straight one on one attention.
      the proof is in how far they have come since september.

      formal school is NOT the only means to higher education. between recess, gym, assemblies, and waiting waiting waiting for the others to catch up, my kids were hardly doing any core subject work in formal school.
      not to mention, the amount of time teachers spend on discipline problems, that detracts from actual learning. Social skills are important, but what really are kids learning from being stuck in a building for 30+ hours a week? my kids socialize and it’s far more beneficial to their self esteem and growth to do it away from the same kids, the same issues, over worked teachers, for 30+ hours a week.
      bullying is a huge issue, for good reason.

      home schooling is the best choice we made as parents.

    • Bridget says:

      There is an incredible difference between the amount of schoolwork needed by an elementary/middle schooler and a couple of late high-school students. Amd realistically, at an elite lrivate school like the one the two jenner girls attended, there wasnt an awful lot of classroom management needed.

  6. Ag says:

    Ehm, shouldn’t both the CA Dept of Education AND Children’s Services be on this? There are laws governing how much children can work. Seems like she works too much for a 17-year old child, not to mention that her basic education is being severely neglected.

  7. Migdalia says:

    Ok so when I went to high school I had 8 periods…40 min each. One of them being lunch and the other being gym…in my case I dropped lunch to be able to take orchestra and jazz band classes. Point is…you’re only learning for maybe 4-5 hours everyday in school anyway. The same averages out in college aside from the homework you may have to do.

  8. Tiffany27 says:

    What is she wearing though?

    • HH says:

      Right? Her clothing choices are questionable (to say the least). I can’t believe her mom let’s her walk out of house like that. Well… I can believe it, but I just throw in tons of shame, judgement, and scorn.

  9. pagirl says:

    Hey y’all, former homeschool kid here (1st-10th grades). Who knows if Kylie is telling the truth, and as the blurb mentions, requirements for homeschoolers vary from state to state. However, from personal experience, I only did around 3-4 hours of schoolwork a day too, especially by the time I was Kylie’s age.

    Homeschooling is not for everyone, but it’s great if you’re self-motivated and can work at your own pace. I think a lot of times teachers have to teach to the “lowest common denominator,” leaving the brighter kids just sitting around waiting to move on and learn something new. Imagine if you could just power through all your coursework without having to change classrooms, go to your lockers, waste time in study halls, etc. etc. I was able to graduate high school early (attended a college prep school my last two years) and did very well in college. Don’t be hatin’ on the homeschool life :).

    ETA: Bruce’s face. WHAT.HAPPENED.

    • Migdalia says:

      Hey PAGirl +100000 it was actually handicapping my sister to stay in a traditional high school environment because the teachers were too busy disciplining disruptive kids. Also as young kids can be she was actually not working to her full potential because of the people she hung out with in school. So at 17 she’s being homeschooled online similar to college distance learning and has a A average. Homeschool is def not for everyone, and neither is a traditional learning environment. These days kids are terrorizing teachers and their classmates.

    • S says:

      I was homeschooled my freshman and sophomore years of highschool before returning back to school (I was the oldest child in my family and a bit of a guinea pig for my mom, who was a former teacher. I did kindergarten through 8th in public school, and Junior and Senior year in private school. I graduated at the top of my class when I returned back to school). When homeschooled I spent about 3-4 hours a day on school work, mostly teaching myself. My mom had lesson plans for me to follow and would help when I needed it, but for the most part, I didn’t need more time than that. I took a biology lab and a chemistry class with some other homeschooled kids from a local college professor, and we did a lot of hands on learning.

      I can’t comment on Kylie’s curriculum, but 3-4 hours a day is completely reasonable.

      • pagirl says:

        Migdalia, glad your sister is doing so well! S, I was the same way, after probably 5th grade, my mom continued to buy a specific curriculum each year but everything was basically self-directed. I did biology as part of a homeschool co-op, too :).

    • swack says:

      As a retired teacher I believe whatever works for you is great! I applaud all those who are motivated enough to do the work on their own. Homeschooling is so different today than when my children were in school. And you are correct about the amount of actual learning time in a classroom. Between attendance taking, returning papers, interruptions of “important” announcements (rolling my eyes as I say this) and dealing with disruptive students, if you get a good 30 minutes of instructional time in then you are lucky. I loved interacting with my students and teaching them, but the bs involved in education just gets old. You don’t have to deal with the bs with homeschooling and that is a HUGE plus. I really don’t think this girl does 3 – 4 hours of school work a day because I don’t think there is anyone at home to make sure she does do the work. And Amanda_387, if you think she is doing school work on Sat an Sun, then I have some swamp land in the desert to sell you.

  10. Jackson says:

    What is it that this girl works at all day while not being home-schooled? Going shopping? Seriously, what does she DO??? A photo shoot here or a promo appearance there doesn’t occupy all the hours in a day, week after week. How freaking pathetic.

  11. MollyB says:

    3-4 hours sounds pretty typical for the homeschoolers I know. Every state has different regulations but without the distraction of other kids, schooling can certainly be condensed. Not that I think this girl is getting any kind of decent education, obviously.

  12. janie says:

    I don’t believe for a minute either of them are homeschooled. They wander aimlessly everyday shopping and getting coffee. They’re being trained for a higher purpose, or so Kris intended. Too bad they’re all fading and these girls really need an education. The money train & 15minutes are over.

  13. Liberty says:

    Who is “schooling” them, and in what?

    • Lucky Charm says:

      She’s attending the world famous “Jenner Finishing School for Famewh0res”, and Kris is the instructor.

  14. Lisa says:

    I don’t think that number of hours is unusual for a decent homeschooling education. When I was in high school, I had six fifty-minute periods (300 minutes), but at least 50 of those minutes were dealing with stuff like taking attendance, going over questions I didn’t need answered, etc. And this was in the tough, college-prep classes, such as AP Calculus, AP US History, etc.

    I would be a lot more concerned about the quality of education that goes into those four hours. Let’s just hope that whoever is doing the homeschooling isn’t doing what the mother of one homeschooled student I knew did. That lady gave her daughter the test, and if the daughter didn’t know the answers, just gave her the answer sheet to fill in the right ones.

  15. idk says:

    Kendal just turned 18…did she graduate? The Kardashians never made a big deal out of her getting her highschool diploma. Where is the hour long episode celebrating Kendal’s home-school graduation lol? I don’t see how Kylie is busy “working” all day. Doing what? How often do they have photoshoots? Yes they film a reality show, but to be honest the younger ones aren’t on it THAT much…plus it’s not like they are actresses who have to spend time memorizing lines *cough* *cough*.

    Also, I highly doubt Bruce cares about education…how many out of his 6 children went to college? Don’t tell me Brody is a college grad lol. Actually, it appears that NONE of Bruce’s biological kids has a normal 9-5 job either.

  16. emmie_a says:

    If she works so much, what about child labor laws??

  17. LadySlippers says:

    Glad to see how many people here are sticking up for homeschooling. And as MANY others have pointed out, 3-4 hours is often more than enough to get through all the basics and then some.

  18. NovemberScorpio says:

    I have to roll my eyes every time I hear a Kardashian say how hard they work. I’m sure her typical ‘workday’ includes; uploading pics to Instagram, 2 hours of hair & makeup, and driving her G Wagon to Starbucks for a vanilla latte. How does she handle all that pressure?!

  19. diib says:

    Wow.. this is SO different from the education system I was in! I had minimum 7 hours of school when I was attending high school and the year when I had to take national exams, I had night classes too which made up a total of 11hours of school! (Breaks not included). Needless to say, each class consists of 40+ students…

  20. Amanda_M87 says:

    Actually, if she gets homeschooled 7 days a week, she would get about the same amount of education as a kid who goes to class six hours a day five days of the week.

  21. yeahright says:

    I really don’t think the amount of time spent on one’s education means anything. It’s what one puts into it that makes the real difference, this is where you can start drawing lines between the “well informed members of society” and the “non well informed members of society.”

  22. lrm says:

    Um, that’s all many people do when homeschooling b/c you don’t have discipline and paperwork for 30 kids on average. I homeschooled several years; it just does not take that long, whether using the state curriculum and texts or otherwise. Think about it: if you were to do the work you [or your kids] do in school each day, at home, how long would it take, start to finish with fewer interruptions, repeated instructions to several different people, questions, etc?

    Honestly, is this scandalous? really?
    Also, this is standard knowledge; you’ll find average newspapers with articles on how so and so in high school was able to complete academic work with honors, score high test grades and have time to work, or volunteer or dedicate to a sport or art that one is talented in….

    Not saying school sucks. but the implication that home school does not have oversight and somehow is fraudulent is really old at this point. Both styles of schooling have pluses and minuses. And both work well for some students and not others. And the true history of public schooling is not as altruistic as people believe it is. Options are a good thing, anyway.

  23. Sarah says:

    I was homeschooled from middle school on and I did 3 hours a day. 8am-11am.

  24. Caroline says:

    I was home-schooled too in high school(mainly self-taught), spent less than 3 hours on schoolwork each day, averaged in the high 80s, and got into all the university programs I applied to. If she’s applying herself during the 3-4 hours each day, I don’t see the issue.
    Then again, I’m from Canada, where the public school system is basically =.=

  25. Claire says:

    She is probably the least interesting of all of them (mean I know) and that is saying something. I know she will probably be able to coast along on her surname but hoping she gains some more brains, stops hanging with Jayden Smith and Bieber and does something with her life.

  26. Lauraq says:

    When I was 16 I was in college…Because I was homeschooled I finished high school early. I just had reading and work assignments, and once I finished them, I was done for the day. So, I could screw around and take all day, or I could focus and knock out all the work in a few hours (much easier without other kids around, by the way). Some days I would actually do an entire weeks worth of homework in 8 hours so I could goof off for the rest of the week, or get ahead.
