    How can I define the category the posts are being pulled from using the education theme on the home page (above the footer, not in one of the widgetized areas).

    I asked this myself too (probably many people do). I  was only able to limit the amount of  posts under the standard reading settings (not the Genesis Theme settings).

    Let us know if you find out.

    I also am looking for a way to display only one category on a Genesis home page, using the Balance theme. Let me know if you find out how to do this

    Ok I found something thanks to Brad here: http://www.studiopress.com/forums/topic/excluding-category-from-grid-loop/ – this solution was originally give to exclude categories from the home page, see his post there to learn more about that

    Try this, but change your category ID accordingly:

    /** Home page display one category only */

    add_action( ‘pre_get_posts’, ‘exclude_category_posts_home’ );

    function exclude_category_posts_home( $query ) {

    if( $query->is_main_query() && $query->is_home() ) {
    $query->set( ‘cat’, ’4′ );
    }

    }

    Put this in the functions.php file
