How many Alabama students attend private schools?

Source: al.com, by Leada Gore

More than 85,000 students in Alabama attend one of 450 private schools in the state. The vast majority of these schools – about 78 percent – are religiously affiliated. The average attendance is $6,133 for elementary schools and $7,044 for middle and high schools, according to privateschoolreview.com.




I have another question. An obvious question.

1. It's still like that in Farmville VA

FarmVille schools were part of the Brown v. Board suit. As I understand it's still pretty much that the white kids go to private school (different levels of cost) and the non-whites go to public school.

2. It's absolutely scary. They believe in Dominion.

 

they self segregate, although there are some black students who attend. I think it's more about keeping their children away from the "other". Yeah, praise the Lord >

with Marian Wright Edelman to investigate whether tax dollars were being used to support private "segregation academies." Betsy DeVos will be happy to funnel more of our money in the form of vouchers to support academic Apartheid.

Her mission was simple: Establish whether the Dothan school was discriminating based on race.

“It was dangerous, being outsiders in these rural areas, talking about segregation academies,” said Cynthia G. Brown, a longtime education advocate who did work similar to Mrs. Clinton’s.".....(more)

4. A few years back, saw an Independent School playoffs at Troy (State) University.

It was scary, the lack of diversity. Looked more like a Klan rally.

And this was football in Alabama!
