    It's a pretty good idea. However, I always wonder how homeschooling would affect children's social development, since there's not a chance to be around other kids.

    i know for a fact it's a very good thing and have made some great movement
    when M.Collins started her home base teaching for the inner kids she made
    a big splash in the system of education , while i know the affects on kids
    who are home bound for higher learning miss the activities that public schools
    offer and programs

    I really don't know how it affected these kids , but the one's i know came from
    the helm of M. Collins home base schooling & teaching have been outstanding
    it's a good thing and what many of the Afro-Centric needs .

    I think Afro-centric homeschooling is excellent for our children. After all our ancestors were home schooled and learned about their story FIRST (know thy self) and the result of their accomplishment is evident around the world....!

    I think it is a very good idea that needs more of our time and resources.

    If you are a working single parent this doesn't seem possible.
