Racial Equity in Homeschooling

By September 20, 2018 March 11th, 2019 No Comments

“Transitioning to homeschooling was eye opening. This method uncovered how much my own conditioning about learning impacted my daughters. The system was a well-oiled and self-sustaining machine burnt into the recesses of my conscious and unconscious; marionette to the system. A natural learner myself, all that was left was to let go. But unschooling? Initially the term was off putting, but unschooling created a platform to acknowledge and work toward my own liberation. School is not synonymous with learning and when children are genuinely interested, the joys of learning unfold. Now, I am extending my experiences and knowledge with families as an unconventional education advocate with a focus on Black/Brown communities. My work is in providing support through resources and programs that empower, inspire, and create actions that impact families in positive, long-term ways.” Maleka Diggs, founder of Philadelphia’s annual Homeschool Conference and Explorer’s Day Camp  #BIPOCinSDE
