Education

A growing number of African-American parents are home-schooling their children, resulting in a significant increase in standardized test scores.

According to The National Home Education Research Institute, an estimated 220,000 African-American students are currently being home-schooled.

“African-American children who are home-schooled are scoring at the 82 percent in reading and 77 percent in math,” educator and the author of 33 books on Black children and education, Juwanza Kunjufu, wrote in the Atlanta Voice. “This is 30-40 percent above their counterparts being taught in schools. There is a 30 percent racial gap in schools, but there is no racial gap in reading if taught in the home and only a 5 percent gap in math.”

“What explains the success of African-American students being taught by their parents?” he asked. “I believe that it’s love and high expectations.”
