Why Now? : The pandemic forced 9 million students home for remote education. According to the Census in 2019, 3.3 percent of Black families were home-schooling by the fall of 2020, the population increased to 16.1 percent. Now, a growing 16% of homeschooling families are Black. Thus, our homeschool community is "flourishing." This population growth is a response to institutionalized racism, culturally insensitive curriculum, disproportionate use of punitive practices, and implicit bias that marginalizes intellect. This community of parents desire to nurture their students' minds with a worldview that uses literature, STEM, history, and experiences to provide a positive and accurate image.
