According to National Home Education Research Institute, approximately 220,000 African American students are being homeschooled. Black families are one of the fastest growing home school demographic.
A 2012 report published in the Journal of Black Studies found that most black families chose to educate their children at home to avoid school-related racism.
According to The Atlantic, there is a rise in homeschooling for African American families.
“We have all heard that the American education system is not the best and is falling behind in terms of international standards,” Temple University faculty member Ama Mazama said. “But this is compounded for black children, who are treated as though they are not as intelligent and cannot perform as well, and therefore the standards for them should be lower.”
