Chicago — More African American parents are home schooling their children according to The Chicago Sun-Times:

“Families feel like the American education system does not teach African-American children,” said Porter-Ollarvia, a Country Club Hills mom of three. “A lot of times in textbooks, you’ll see ‘Dick run, Dick go,’ Jane and Jack and Jill. But you won’t see African-American names like Zarifah and Muhammad. And a lot of times our children need to see their names and have a point of reference and see themselves in the books.”

Home-schooling experts say more African-American families are choosing to school their children at home, opting out of public schools, which critics say may be not only failing their children, but also in some cases shortchanging them of their history.
