Understanding the level of participation of Blacks in Public and Private Schools gives insight into the performance level and potential college enrollment.
More than half (57%) of Black public school children live in the South which is only slightly higher than the percentage of African Americans in the south as a whole (55%).
A large majority (75%) of African American private school students attend religious schools.
But when looking at the dropout rate one can see that only 8% of African American children dropped out of high school in 2010 compared to 7.4% of all children.
For example in non-Black public schools more than 75% of math teachers had math as their major in college as apposed to 56% of teachers in majority Black schools.
