    BAHC20 (BAHC) - Welcome to the Brooklyn African-American Homeschoolers Connections. We are out here. You have found us. The main purpose of the group is to connect families of color with other families of color who are homeschooling in Brooklyn. The group will also serve as a way to share ideas about curriculum and methodology about homeschooling. Suggestions for trips and field trips can be posted here. This group is a place where you can discuss topics concerning homeschooling issues face in our ethnic group, community and state at large.

    The group’s itinerary for each month will be posted at the beginning of every week. As well as the question of the week, homeschool tips for the week. It is important to note that parties from the tri -state area are more than welcome to make the connection. So come on in and join the conversation among sisters and brothers who are educating our beautiful children of color.

    To keep the group dialogue flowing please post a least twice every month

    Please keep language clean, conversation friendly and intelligent, and no spam allowed. Remember, we do not have to agree on each issue, but we must be able to disagree with a level of tact always in place, which would allow our dialogue to be useful to all the families actively engaging in our group's conversation.

    FamiliesUnschoolingiNNY (Families Unschooling iN NY (FUNNY!)) - This list is for New York State unschoolers (or those interested in moving towards unschooling in NYS). There are at least three definitions of unschooling in use here:

    1.) The kid's the one who chooses what and how to learn, in terms of "academics", the "intellect", or the "required subjects" listed in the NYS Regulations on Home Instruction.

    2.) The books, materials or ways of learning are more creative, hands-on, real-world, flexible, individualized, etc., than what is typically found in conventional schools or in what is sometimes called "school-at-home homeschooling".

    3.) The kid's the one who chooses what and how to learn/do not only within the narrow realm described in definition #1, but also in terms of, for example, what to eat or how much TV to watch.

    You're welcome no matter which definition you prefer - or if yours doesn't fit neatly into one of these. (DISCLAIMER: Elsa, the current listowner, has a bias, preferring definition #1.)

    Some listmembers came here to escape discussions of curricula, etc. Please think twice before posting here what you could just as easily post on a general-interest homeschooling list.

    Our unusual List Guidelines (see Files section) are designed to protect listmembers from the powers of the listowner and moderator/s.

    If you're a journalist, a researcher, or an employee or contractor of any government entity having to do with education or child welfare, or if you're acting on behalf of someone who is, you must reveal this fact to the listowner, who will decide with the moderator/s whether your presence on the list is likely to compromise the freedom of listmembers to express themselves. You are responsible for any professional ethics, rules or laws that preclude your joining this list.

    Elsa is the new listowner, as of 05/30/07. (This list description differs sharply from the one used by her predecessor, Anne. See Files section.)

TLC is a support and activity group for Attachment Parenting families who are homeschooling in Bergen County NJ, Rockland County NY, and the surrounding areas.

    There is no membership fee to join. The only "requirements" for becoming a TLC member include *all* of the following:

    • Attachment Parenting
    • Dedicated to homeschooling
    • Striving to practicing respectful and peaceful parenting

    We are *not* a religious based homeschooling group. All religious beliefs will be accepted. Events that are planned with regards to religious holidays will be welcome, as long as all religious faiths are welcome to attend. For example, it is perfectly OK to have a Hannukah Party or an Easter Gathering, as long as all faiths could attend both events. However, discussion or debates about religion (or politics) will not be tolerated on the loop.

    Topics on this loop should primarily be about activities and resources for homeschoolers in the Northern NJ and Southern NY areas. Other messages should be clearly marked "OT".
