More than one in 10 evangelical teenagers in the United States are homeschooled and an additional six percent are in private school, according to a new Pew Research Center survey.
All total, 17 percent of evangelical teens ages 13-17 are not in public school in the United States – the highest percentage among all Christian groups and more than double that of teens who aren’t affiliated with any religion, the survey found.
Additionally, the 11 percent of evangelical teens who are homeschooled is the highest among all Christian groups and, again, more than twice as much as that of unaffiliated teens. It’s also nearly double the national average (6 percent).
Five percent of evangelical teens attend a religious private school, and an additional 1 percent go to a non-religious private school.
Among other groups:
– 9 percent of Catholic teens attend a religious private school, 2 percent a non-religious private school, and 2 percent are homeschooled, for a total of 13 percent of who aren’t in public school.
