A new report from the U.S. Department of Education offers data on enrollments at for-profit postsecondary educational institutions. The report shows that Blacks make up 16 percent of all undergraduate students in all postsecondary institutions combined.
But if we look only at four-year colleges and universities, we find that Black are 13 percent of all students at private, nonprofit educational institutions and 13 percent of the students at state-operated schools. But Blacks are 27 percent of the total enrollments at for-profit educational institutions.
At two-year colleges and schools, Blacks are 16 percent of all students at two-year, state-operated community colleges. But Africans Americans are 22 percent of all students at two-year, for-profit colleges and schools and 27 percent of all students at schools that are for-profit but are for less than two years.
