A host of arguments can be made to explain the explosive growth in America’s prison population, half of which is African-American. Those arguments range from the nation’s War on Drugs to a twisted subculture within the African-American community that views a prison sentence almost as a rite of passage for young Black males.

Watch. Practice. Learn almost anything for free. With over 3,000 videos on everything from arithmetic to physics, finance, and history and hundreds of skills to practice, we're on a mission to help you learn what you want, when you want, at your own pace.

Khan Academy - videos for science and math. The students use technology of all kinds to work on, create, and submit class work, as well as learn and study. The teachers are opened to leaving the students to work, and expect the students to be on task. This may be leaning more towards the Montessori type schooling, and I love it! Couldn't be more of a harbor for creative and critical thinking, and problem solving!
Remember for when the kids are older. Khan Academy -- thousands of 10-minute (or less) videos on topics in math, science, economics, and history. Amazing. The iPad app is even more epic. It's our #1 homeschool tool.
The Khan Academy's mission is to provide a free world-class education for anyone anywhere. They provide more than 3,000 video lessons in math, science, history and other subjects starting at 3rd grade level. The real magic to the Khan Academy is that kids (and adults) can learn at their own pace, which means they can review subjects they’re struggling with or start learning geometry a few years early if they’re the smartest kid in the class.
KhanAcademy: All of the site's resources are available to anyone. It doesn't matter if you are a student, teacher, home-schooler, principal, adult returning to the classroom after 20 years. The Khan Academy's materials and resources are available to you completely free of charge. Check out over 3,100 video lessons and practice activities...you are never too old for learning!
