The market for home schooling

The Washington Times reports that an increasing number of black families are choosing to home-school their children. Blacks now make up 5 percent of the estimated 1.7 million children who were home-schooled last year. In 1999, it was estimated that blacks repesented only 1 percent of home-schooled children. The increase is the logical consequence of (a) the horrendous state of the public schools available to many African-Americans and (b) the unwillingness of African-American and other Democratic politicians to countenance public funding of alternative schools.
