Home Schooling and Church Buildings

According to today's Deseret News, the LDS Church clarified it's policy for non- church building use as it relates to home schooling. For a first- hand look at this issue, visit Gazelem.

I just read the gazelem post. I thought of some of the same things as noted. I think the primary difference is that things like christmas dinners, large birthdays, ect... are not regularly scheduled events - by the same people/groups.

I think there is nothing wrong with the occasional use of the buildings like a birthday, but when it becomes a regularly scheduled thing, then I can see why the church would step in and set a policy.

I think the church also has to walk a fine line with 'Homeschoolers' because they (the church) does not want to be seen as endorsing any one/specific way of education...education is a very sensitive issue in Utah.

I mentioned this to some of my mormon friends, who commented that a letter from church leadership informing people of this policy had been read in their church meetings. I didn't know it was that big a problem.
