Major New Report on the Status and Trends Relating to African American Education

A new report from the U.S. Department of Education presents a wealth of data on African American education in the United States. Most of the information is contained in other federal reports, but the 228-page report is useful as it collects data on African American educational attainment at all levels in one place.

Included in the report is data on school-age populations, their nativity and household characteristics. Data on educational achievement in particular subject areas is detailed. There are sections on discipline and school safety and the racial makeup of the teacher workforce.

In the section on higher education, there is data on college participation rates, enrollments, and degree attainments. A final section includes information on educational outcomes, employment, and earnings by level of educational attainment.

The full report, Trends in the Education of Racial and Ethnic Groups 2018, may be downloaded by clicking here.

    Jah and Jahnes love.

    It would be nice to learn about the participation of students of Ayiti descent in the U.S. Educational system. But, I am not too hopeful that this report would document or discuss this subject. And that is really too bad. Blessed love.
