Urban public school teachers are about two times more likely than non-teachers to send their own children to private schools. . . .
One study found that in Philadelphia a staggering 44 percent of public school teachers send their own kids to private schools.
In Cincinnati and Chicago, 41 and 39 percent of public school teachers, respectively, pay for a private school education for their children.
In Rochester, N.Y., it’s 38 percent. In Baltimore it’s 35 percent, San Francisco is 34 percent, and New York-Northeastern New Jersey is 33 percent.
In Los Angeles nearly 25 percent of public school teachers send their kids to private school versus 16 percent of all Angelenos who do so.
