Why the Rise in African-American Homeschooling?

So, it appears that 2015 will be another year upon the freeway of life, i.e. that point when life and its blessings and favor are moving fast enough for my head to spin in wonder.   As I downsize our homeschool classes by one (minus a Physics class), I am expanding my business reach as I write, speak, and attempt in some small way to build the homeschool community by welcoming and encouraging its newest members.   It is a prayerful time of resting in the Father.   And by ‘resting,’ I do not mean lying around in an idle state, for there is much to do; instead, I am striving to not be overwhelmed, but to see as He sees, and to not get distracted with all the opportunities that lie before me.

Amongst the newest members of the homeschooling community are a host of African-American homeschooling parents; in fact, according to several sources, this is the largest population of newcomers beginning their homeschooling journey.   And as we all sort through how to educate our children during these turbulent times, there are a number of voices that resonate, some more loudly than others.   I want to be a voice that speaks a timeless message: God created, He sent His son Christ to save, and the Holy Spirit was left with us to continuously sustain.   To that end, I so enjoyed my time with Kendra and Andy (“Fletch”) Fletcher during a recent interview on Homeschooling IRL on the rise in African-American homeschoolers.   You can listen to the podcast here.

  1. It is always a pleasure to catch up with you. I can’t believe how much your kids have grown up. It was nice to hear your voice after all of these years and on such an important topic too.
