My name is Rehena Prior, the founder of Black and Other UK HomeEducators. I have had such pleasure in joining the home educationcommunity, that I want to give something back.I have always been a home educator, as have all of us. It is naturalprogression from giving birth onwards.Even after handing over to the state I was, at the very least a part-timer.This was before I knew that I had the choice to a carry on nurturing mychildren full time.Society would have labelled me as being a state school mum, although Icontinued naturally to exercise home education on a day-to-day basis.We did a lot of research and visits etc. outside of school hours, sitting,encouraging and explaining to supplement learning.It took a while before the penny dropped. Having been told that homeeducation was an option, we realised that we had out grown school and nolonger wanted to attend.With some serious thought and discussion the decision was made. I took onthe full responsibility of educating 'otherwise'.This started my journey to find a new way of learning. Rediscovering theneed for childhood and just being ourselves. Working through strengths andweaknesses with a positive outlook. Capturing the innocence andinquisitiveness.If you are considering that home education might be for you, then read on.There is a lot to think about. Once the decision is made then its justquestion of what comes next.I hope that you find this booklet helpful in making your decision, only youknow what's best for your children.We as a family have grown as result, and so have the number of homeeducators of multicultural faith, class, race and gender.If home education is not the right thing for you, but you know someone whomight find this booklet useful, then please pass this booklet on to them. Welive in a time where recycling is a good thing, and this could help someonewho might need to re-evaluate their options for their children andthemselves.
