Home-schooling can be beneficial to all children, but more so minority children than white children. Racism abounds at public schools and the students suffer because of it. Writer Antonio Buehler says that these are some standout reasons that black children should be home-schooled:

1. Black students are more segregated to lower performing schools than other races. There are 27,000 high schools in the country. 1,700 of those schools are deemed as the worst-performing schools in the country. One-third of the black high school student population attends these schools. These 1,700 schools produce 50% of the dropouts out of all 27,000 schools. The current dropout rate for black students in 51% and it is no wonder due to the schools that so many of them attend.

2. Private schools are not often an option. There are programs where students from lower income families can get scholarships and vouchers for the tuition at a private school, but the second that they enter the school they are one of very few poor children in a sea of rich kids.
