The National Home Education Research Institute reports that the total number of kids being home-schooled has more than doubled since 1999 to more than two million and over 220,000 of those students are African-American.
Education sociologist say African-Americans are looking at home-schooling as a better alternative to public school because of issues such as bullying and drugs. Also, many public schools do not focus on important areas such as African American history and home-schooling parents are able to do so when they educate their own children.
According to George Noblit, an education sociologist,home-schooling will continue to accelerate among African-Americans over the next decade.
