BATON ROUGE- A national report released this week listed the Capital City as the fourth-largest percentage of private school enrollment.

New Orleans topped the list and was followed by Honolulu, HI, San Francisco, CA, and then Louisiana's capital. According to data, 19.1% of students attend a private school here. In New Orleans, a quarter of students attend a school that is not public and tax-payer supported.

Fresno, CA, had the fewest number of students enrolled in a private school. There, it was just 3.7 percent.

Education is controversial in Baton Rouge, where there is an effort to create the City of St. George and establish an independent school district outside of the East Baton Rouge Parish School System.
