Visible Now: Blacks in Private Schools


Since 1970 increasing percentages of Black students have enrolled in all types of private schools in diverse though predominantly urban regions of the nation. This book looks at all aspects of the educational experiences of the Black children in private and parochial schools, and explores the implications of private schooling for educational policy and future research. The editors' introduction provides an overview of the educational situation of Black children, focusing on the interface between the children, their families, and academic achievement in their schools. The organization of the volume reflects the diversity of private school types attended by Black children.
