Black parents embrace homeschooling

The Epoch Times reported, "Homeschool Applications Double In California."

The story said, "The number of home school applications submitted to the California Department of Education soared during the 2020-2021 school year, state data indicates.

"There were 34,715 private school affidavits (PSAs) for five children or less submitted during the most recent curricular year. In California, homeschools are recognized as private schools, and homeschooling families are required to submit an affidavit to the DOE annually.

"The most recent homeschool figures are more than twice as high as they were during the 2018-2019 school year, when 14,548 PSAs were filed. There were 22,433 PSAs filed during the 2019-2020 school year."

The numbers are minuscule in a state of 40 million or so people.

However, the rest of the nation is in rebellion against public schools.

The story said, "Between spring and fall of 2020, the percentage of homeschoolers nationwide more than doubled, jumping from 5.4% to 11.1% in less than four months."

The parents of 1 in 9 students believe public schools are so terrible that they would rather keep the kids home and teach them themselves.

Well, it is just the white kids, right? They don't matter because whites will soon be a minority. Black and Hispanic kids will easily displace them in unionized public schools.

The story also said, "The largest increase in homeschoolers was especially notable among minority groups, including black and Hispanic learners.

"In African American households, the proportion of homeschooling quintupled from 3.3% in spring 2020, to 16.1% in fall 2020.

"In Hispanic households, the number of homeschooling households doubled in the same time, from 6.2% to 12.1%."

You can be darned sure parents aren't teaching their kids CRT. Why, some may even be reading The Bible.

Liberals are alarmed. 

1 in 6 black kids stay at home to learn instead of going to school to be indoctrinated.

PBS reported, "If schools fail to secure the trust of parents, advocates and educators worry that the public education system could see a falloff in enrollment, particularly among families of color. Some advocates also fear that schools faced with a larger proportion of students who are struggling or frequently absent will respond with overly punitive approaches, worsening racial inequality."

Translation: Black parents must sacrifice their children for the sake of the community, comrade.

The covid push to homeschool is interesting. Black families are more likely to homeschool now than Hispanic families who are more likely than whites who are more likely than Asians.

That is the reverse of academic performance.

My guess is black schools are losing their best students. My guess is that those students will perform better. And my third guess is they won't be liberal.

  1. When that 1 in 6 becomes 3 or 4 in 6, the liberals are screwed.

  3. Forced closing of public schools by the teachers' unions was a big mistake. It taught the parents that they can do as well as or do a better job than the indoctrinators in teaching their kids. It also taught two parent households something of the economy of a working household: partners sharing time; less is more; etc.

  4. Every child that leaves a public school costs the school district a lot of money from the federal government. That's a big hit, about $1,100 per.

    2. A great partial solution for all this crap would be a voucher program for each student. Make the schools compete for students and give parents a real choice. I'd expect this to put the unions out of business PDQ, which would be great for students and competent teachers. Unions mostly exist to protect incompetent workers; a voucher system could weed those folks out.

  5. What black parent wants their children taught that they’re losers when they’re born, will be losers their entire life, and will die losers, simply because they’re black.

  6. I am soooooo not bummed for the schools. The Teachers' unions should be defenestrated (tossed out a window) or declared illegal (same-same), and my parents were teachers, back in the '50s and later.

  7. A quick search shows CA Spends $12,143 per student in education. Pass a law or ballot initiative that the money goes to the family. Family home schools and pockets $12,143 per student that the government schools DON'T get! Teachers Union and Public Education dies right there. Countries where the $$ follows the child always excel in testing. That's where US needs to be.

  9. "Translation: Black parents must sacrifice their children for the sake of the community, comrade."

    Sacrificed again. The black community is the intersection of CRT,feminism, the welfare state, the village raising the kids, the state raising the kids, depositing and has suffered from the white liberal's mischief.

    It is very late, but for their own sakes, I hope that they listen to Jason Whitlock, Booker T. Washington, and Frederick Douglass instead of hate triggers like Coates, Talcum X and the rest of them.

  10. Public schools work okay for average intelligence kids who don't have mental or emotional problems.

    Public schools do very little for kids of below average intelligence. These kids fall behind early and never catch up. If the parents are active and involved the kids may achieve basic literacy. A far more likely outcome is for these kids to get passed along thru the system until they are old enough to drop out or be expelled. Prisons and graveyards are filled with the adult versions of these kids.

    Public schools provide recreational and social opportunities for kids with severe physical and cognitive impairments. These children are human beings who deserve love and attention, but no amount of education will ever make them normal.

    The kids most ill-served by our public schools are the smart kids - kids with IQs ranging from 110 up to genius. Any PS programs aimed at helping these kids is held hostage to the political correctness ideas of "Wokeness" and the racial orthodoxy of SJWs. The Harvard Admissions scandal is an exasmple of how it works.

    Our schools are paced for "average" kids in the fat part of the Bell curve - from slightly below average to slightly above average. These are kids with IQs between 90 and 110. A motivated kid in this range can excel in public schools.

    But he'll still be average.

  11. The new National Spelling Bee champion, Zaila Avant-garde is a home-schooled, black girl. She's a rather remarkable human being in her own right, famous until now for her amazing basketball dribbling skills. But still the point is home schooled.
