Two compelling and educational investigations about homeschooling by black American parents have revealed facts, which prove the absolute necessity of teaching black children about their race’s world history.
The first investigative revelation we will discuss in this analysis from TheBlackHomeSchool.com is an extensive research paper published in 2017 by the National Council of Social Studies. This organization’s report is titled The Status of Black Schools in U.S. Schools and Society. It was based on a 2015 research study led by Dr. LaGarrett J. King.
Dr. King is a distinguished black educator who works for the University of Missouri. His was also the lead author of the 2017 report published by the National Council of Social Studies. Homeschooling in black America is on the rise and this is especially true in the South, according to the second investigative revelation we will discuss later.
The National Council’s report also talks about the current state of affairs regarding the enforcement of a black history mandate in a number of U.S. This is important to focus on because these mandates are often either initially created inadequately or loosely enforced.
“[U.S.] states such as California,Colorado, Michigan, South Carolina,Tennessee, and Washington have passed
educational laws regarding Black history with no special oversight committee.The mandates are similar in many
regards but vary in scope and implementation,” Dr. King wrote in the National Council’s report.
Furthermore, the second focus of our analysis is a digital documentary produced by NBC News titled The Autonomy of Black Home Schooling. NBC’s report on this film is both a treat and medicinal to watch. This may be especially the case for black women because they are showcased in such a liberated manner, which enriches their children.
One awesome black woman in the film expressed black history homeschooling as a “form or resistance” against the anti-black conventional public school system. You can see this beautiful display of true and morally sound independence for black women by visiting the link to the second research source listed at the end of this article.
