Watch. Practice.

Learn almost anything for free!

The equalizer for black children and college students.

With over 3,300 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.
The point of this post is to point you, and your children, to one of the best options available for students from kindergarten to 12th grade, and beyond; to those enrolled in college! It is the Khan Academy, and it’s free; that’s right folks – free. By now, many have heard of this website, which Khan maintains, and refuses to sell. His goal is to offer anyone, anywhere in the world a world class education for free. He quit his 6 figure job to dedicate his time to this site, and now over 90 million lessons have been delivered.

It is well documented that inner city schools are deprived of the same opportunities for learning, as compared to white suburban schools. Even Oprah did a show that demonstrated the differences between an all white school in the Chicago area, equipped with computers, a state of the art pool, and gym, the best books the state could buy, with an all black school in the inner city, with poor plumbing, raggity books, a sorry gym, etc.

Regardless of this, blacks do the best they can with what they have, and always have. In fact, some of the top scorers on standardized exams, America,  have been black kids.
