- aasph (African-American Single Parent Homeschoolers) - African-American Single Parent Homeschoolers is a discussion group designed to lend support and resources to parents who are home schooling alone.
Being a single parent homeschooler can be difficult and challenging, but not impossible. Learn from other parents who are the sole bread winner and their child's primary teacher. Share ideas, network and support each other.
If you are a veteran single parent homeschooler, what are some ways that you have learned to home school successfully? How have you balanced working and teaching?
If you are a new homeschooler or a parent who is simply thinking about home education, what are your biggest questions and concerns? Do you have a support system of friends and family that can help you make a smooth transition to home schooling?

- AfAmUnschool (African American Unschoolers) - Karibu/Welcome African-American Homeschoolers!
African American Unschoolers is for African-American Moms (and Dads!) who use the whole world as their child(ren)'s classroom. Unschoolers encounter math, science, reading, writing, art and history in the Real World because real living leads to real learning!
So what's an unschooler? For unschoolers, the motivation behind the learning is more important than the method used to learn. The attitude and approach of unschooling is guided by the child, with parents facilitating the process as advisors and advocates.
Unschooling parents are some of the most generous, interesting and resourceful people you will ever meet. All members are encouraged to post and share questions and experiences from their unschooling adventures!
