Heartland’s Heather Kays speaks with RiShawn Biddle, who runs Dropout Nation, an education news and policy magazine, about the number of black families choosing to homeschool increasing in recent years. Biddle talks about the increase in black families homeschooling and the various reasons they are deciding to do so.
Biddle says the way black students and especially male students are treated within traditional public schools leads some families to seek other options such as homeschooling.
