It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge.

We are the Robeson Group, named after and celebrating the work, life and legacy of Renaissance Man, Paul Robeson. We are a family run educational strategy firm who’s motto and focus is, “Think Big. Start Early!” For over 15 years, we’ve honed our understanding of “Education” and “Global Market Economics” in the US, Mexico, South Africa, China, Russia, India and most recently, Switzerland and France. In 2017, a two-page article published in the Washington Post, celebrating “The Next Einstein,” brought our small homeschool setting to national and international audiences. We’ve since received invitations to appear on 3 major network programs on: ABC, CBS, and 3 different programs on NBC Networks. Additionally, we’ve been invited to the corporate headquarters of Apple, and SalesForce, and are now Brand Ambassadors for Meade Instruments; who also serve as our exclusive telescope and optics sponsors.
Our work with our 9 year old son, Global Science Ambassador, Romanieo Jr., has positioned us to be one of the only families to receive invitations to 3 of the world’s Top Scientific and Research facilities: CERN, which is the European Organization for Nuclear Research, located in Geneva, Switzerland; 4 NASA sites, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration; and LLNL, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, home of the United State’s Nuclear Fusion program. This unprecedented access has given us (as parents, teachers, academics and strategists) unique insight into the global educational needs for tomorrow’s workforce. Through continued hard work, vision and strategic partnerships; our short and midterm goals are to provide a framework for amplifying genius within parents, children, individuals of all ages, educational institutions and corporations alike.
Knowledge is power. Information is liberating. Education is the premise of progress, in every society, in every family. ~ Kofi Annan
