Homeschooling, common among white Americans, is showing an increase among African-Americans kids as well. African-Americans now make up about 10% of all homeschooled children in this fastest-growing form of education.
However, the reasons for black kids to be homeschooled may not be the same as white kids. My research shows that black parents homeschool their children due to white racism.
This may come as a surprise since, for many, we live in an age of alleged color blindness and post-racialism, characterized by the declining significance of race and racism.
My research found strong evidence to suggest that racism is far from being a thing of the past.
