Structural racism is the overarching system of racial bias across institutions and society.
Why it's important
Homeschooling families and those interested in homeschooling from communities of color face unique challenges, barriers to access and limited support structures. It's important to recognize these unique challenges and take action to break down obstacles to information, provide pathways to existing supports, and resources for existing groups to make their communities safer.
