If you haven't talked to your child's teacher about what their lesson plans are for Black History Month (or for any subject), I encourage you to do so.The burden of education isn't solely on the teachers. It's my responsibility, as well. There are many opportunities available for what your children learn. You just have to ask.
I am an accidental homeschooler. I didn't plan on educating my children at home. I didn't plan on joining the ranks of parents who are sometimes viewed as insular and anti-social. Like many others, I thought that all homeschoolers purposely sheltered their kids from the real world. Seven years after my kids have dragged me into this lifestyle, I can wholeheartedly declare that I am more connected to the world than ever before.
In light of the prodigious threat posed by Lassa fever to an already fragile public healthcare system, WBFA and I will also facilitate capacity building for healthcare workers, especially in the areas of reproductive, maternal, newborn, child and adolescent health (RMNCAH), in order to minimize morbidities and mortalities resulting from the disease.

The assumption is that one category of schooling is fundamentally better than all others. Charters for many have emerged as the silver bullet. If charters are better than public schools, then creating more charters will de facto enhance outcomes for America's children, so the theory goes. This is wrongheaded.
