This morning I talked to a woman in this town who knows a lot of people here. She told me there are quite a few home schoolers here. However she said not too many of them are Black.

Is home schooling a luxury for white people? Is it unreasonable to suggest Black women quit their jobs so that they will have time to home school their children> Being a stay at home mother has been a luxury for white women which over the last fifty years they have turned intos exual oppression because they had nothing else to fight for. But Black women have always had to work. So what they offer as solutions mean nothing to us.

A Black woman has to think of the economic consequences of quiting her job. I know of more than one woman in this town who is a widow now because her husband literally worked himself to death. A neighbor used to borrow money from me for carfare because her job didn't pay her enough to get to work.

All the threads in this forum show how vitally important it is to take charge of our children's education. But this is where it will break down and come to nothing if we can not think of reasonable strategies that will help Black women deal with the realities of their lives.

I know it's going to require sacrifice. Some of us may have to give up that second car and re-assess the difference between needs and wants. And some Blacks just aren't going for that. We can't help those who put keeping up with the Joneses before their children's future. But how can we minimize the amount of sacrifice actually required for those who want to but just don't know how?

Let's be creative fambly.

There are not a lot of resources available in this area so take advantage of the ones' which do exist. Since it takes a "Village" to raise our children view this "Village" as Global in nature.

I have a few more links and will share later. This is one as a start.

Peace.

I'm Black on Destee, I feel at home! It's been a while! Soooo in 2004 I married my Senegalese Husband, when I first went to Senegal, I loved, it! The people were hospitable and my husband's family was very kind! Well I've been there many times now, have taken African Americans, well over 150 and it has been an amazing experience!
