This is the first study of its kind. And the research findings are provocative.


The purpose of this study was to explore the academic achievement of Black homeschool students in Grades 4 to 8 as it relates to various demographic features of the students and their families. Also, the study was designed to better understand these African American parents’ motivations for homeschooling. This study is meant to be the first of its type for approaching these two aspects of this group of homeschoolers’ lives.

These parents’ reasons for homeschooling are similar to those of homeschool parents at large in the United States. In addition, some of them mentioned race/ethnicity-related issues as part of their many reasons for homeschooling. However, findings in this study offer no solid evidence that this group of Black homeschoolers chose home-based education primarily to promote anything like Afrocentrism or its thinking to their children, even though some researchers have found more focus on this in their qualitative studies of Black homeschool (home schooling, home school) parents.
