FAQ's About Ebony Homeschoolers
Established: December 2001
Currently, there are no membership requirements other than the agreement to be respectful of our Statement of Purpose and abide by What We Expect. However we strongly urge homeschooling families to join their state or regional homeschool associations. These are the organizations that fight for our homeschool rights. It is to your benefit and that of future homeschool families that we support (join) these state and/or regional organizations.
If you are in the Memphis area, we urge you to join the Memphis-area Home Education Association.
Regardless of where you live, another strong recommendation would be to join the Homeschool Legal Defense Association. Please visit their website at http://www.hslda.org. A wealth of information on all things homeschool! It is because of the efforts of this organization that homeschooling is now legal in all 50 states in America.
Although we no longer require a membership fee, we do ask that when you join MHEA (and/or HSLDA), that you would list Ebony Homeschoolers as your support group.
Ebony Homeschoolers, a Christ-centered online homeschool support group designed for all homeschoolers, has a special heart for the African-American homeschooler. Our primary purpose is to serve as a resource for education, information, and encouragement to our members.
Because we are online, we are limited regarding field trips, activities, and enrichment classes. We do encourage members to organize small group meet-ups and outings. Our primary focus is to be a ministry to the home educator. Our goal is to equip moms by providing insight, inspiration, and information for the home school journey. We want you, parent, to be encouraged, confident, and successful. Come, join in the fellowship online!
