Marley Richards

Maleka Diggs and Akilah S. Richards  talk about the issues with inequitable SDE spaces in terms of race/culture.

They invite you to sign up for the live, virtual training on this topic:

Taking this training will support your exploration and understanding of:

  • The characteristics of pervasive whiteness and schoolish tactics in intended self-directed environments, including SDE centers, homeschooling and/or unschooling co-ops, and at home
  • How those characteristics inform the content, the structure, the relationships, and often, the lack of success in SDE environments, and ways to work through the issues therein
  • Why BIPOC families can feel particularly isolated inside SDE spaces (and how to proactively address that)
  • What equity can look like in SDE spaces, and how to start creating those realities
  • How to proactively address issues of inequitable beliefs and practices with parents who want to be part of an SDE community, but don’t seem to have done the work to be part of the solution, not the problem

Delivered through two 90-minute trainings

(both will be recorded and accessible within 24 hours):

Tuesday, 3 September, 2:30pm ET

Tuesday, 10 September, 2:30pm ET
