The Rise of Black Homeschooling

“Black families have only recently turned to homeschooling in significant numbers. The Census Bureau found that, by October, 2020, the nationwide proportion of homeschoolers—parents who had withdrawn their children from public or private schools and taken full control of their education—had risen to more than eleven per cent, from five per cent at the start of the pandemic. For Black families, the growth has been sharper. Around three per cent of Black students were homeschooled before the pandemic; by October, the number had risen to sixteen per cent.”

It is no secret that the traditional public school system has failed Black people miserably in the United States. Perhaps, with the assistance of technology, we can make homeschooling work for us. Anyone out there have a conscious, informed K-12 homeschool curriculum that you’d like to share with the X Nubia Phi community?
