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.
