It’s becoming apparent that the education system isn’t working as well as it should. Class sizes are increasing, governments are pressuring schools, schools are pressuring teachers, teachers are pressuring our children and our children of African or Caribbean descent are achieving lower grades than other children in many areas, without their cultural greatness being taught to them.

We need to make a change and it can start by us TEACHING OUR OWN

Whether you want to take your child out of school and teach them full time or you want to know what you can do with them at home around their schooling, this is the event for you.

The event was well attended and progressive.  On the day there was:

  • – Talks from parents & educators on the downfalls of the school system, benefits and ‘How-to’s” of homeschooling, plus a panel of past and present homeschooling families your can hear from and ask questions to.
  • – Market – We’ll have a range of black owned businesses selling products and services to help your homeschooling journey – contact Ma’at on 07961 360795 to book your stall
  • – Children’s activities – There’ll be activities for children on the day, plus a bouncy castle.
  • – Healthy Food – Delicious health conscious foods and drinks will also be sold on the day.
