Record: Ama Mazama, "African American Homeschooling Practices: Empirical Evidence.
Theory and Research in Education, 14, No. 1 (2016): 26-44. [Abstract] Summary: Mazama, one of the leading researchers on African American homeschooling, is Associate Professor and Director of the Graduate Programs of the Department of African American Studies at Temple University. In this article, she seeks to investigate the daily instructional practices of African American homeschoolers. Mazama says very directly in her abstract that her findings do not lend credence to that. Mazama and her colleague Garvey Musumunu conducted 74 interviews across a wide geographical area. 29.7% of the respondents came from Chicago and its surrounding suburbs. This was followed by the metropolitan areas of Philadelphia (25.7%), Washington, DC (17.6%), New York (10.8%), Atlanta (8.1%), two cities in South Carolina (6.7%), and a city in Delaware (1.3%). 80% of the interviews were conducted with only the mothers. In addition to the interviews, Mazama also relied on surveys, focus groups, and observations in order to gain the most comprehensive understanding of Black homeschoolers. Mazama found that the mother was the main teacher in 95% of Black homeschools. Like most homeschooling families, the father is usually the breadwinner and the mother stays home with the children. In cases of homeschooling with single mothers, grandparents might step in to teach the children. However, when children are older, Mazama noted that many teach themselves without much involvement on the parent's end since the students developed skills to learn independently. Finally, it is important to mention that Mazama found the parents she interviewed to be very distrustful of public schools. Only 11 of the 74 families opted to take advantage of public school resources, even though they are legally entitled to them. Now Mazama turns her focus to the instructional practices of homeschoolers. Overall, like homeschoolers in general, a variety of practices were found. Mazama divided the spectrum broadly into parents who promulgated child-driven learning and those who practiced adult-driven learning. Mazama described one self-proclaimed Christian couple who terminated their subscription to their online curriculum because it portrayed slavery as "not that bad. Appraisal: Mazama, along with her usual co-author Garvey Lundy (now Musumunu), has published many articles about African American homeschoolers in the past, but none of the others are as complete as this one.
