Study ranks 2 La. cities in top 5 with students enrolled in private school

(WAFB) - A new study points out the areas where parents are more likely to send their kids to private schools and Louisiana has two cities in the top five.

The study by real estate website Trulia ranks New Orleans at the top of the list, with Baton Rouge coming in not far behind at No. 4.

According to Trulia, there are various reasons why parents choose to send their children to private rather than public schools and faith plays a big part in the decision.

The site stated that reason is especially true in areas with a largely Catholic population.
