Dinner Discussion Topic: The Future of DeSoto ISD

September 21, 2:30 PM - 5:00 PM @ Located in DeSoto Town Center on the corner of Hampton and Pleasant Run Roads.
Directed by Regina Washington Homeschooled is the story of Johnetta Duncan, a homeschool co-op leader lost in grief after the death of her mother. She finds herself quickly losing control of her life and her classroom. A student's simple inquiry as to the meaning of the word "lynch" unearths the cruelty and pain surrounding the tragic history of the lynchings in the American South. Morgan, a frustrated mother, is greatly disturbed by the classroom incident and believes that iw would not have occurred had Johnetta not been so overwhelmed by grief. No longer wishing to look the other way, Morgan questions Johnetta's effectiveness as a teacher and challenges Johnetta "to get hold of her life and let go!"
