Another poll shows American families want more school choice

redefinED staff

A new survey of likely voters in five key swing states commissioned by the Manhattan Institute found that respondents, especially nonwhite Americans, tend to favor expanded school choice options.

The poll surveyed about 5,000 likely voters in Pennsylvania, Ohio, Wisconsin, Michigan and North Carolina between late August and Early September and found that between two-thirds and three-quarters of voters in those states support publicly funded K-12 school choice.

Key findings:

·       Between 51% and 62% of respondents said they support state-funded charter schools as an alternative to district-managed public schools.

·       Support for publicly funded school choice programs was higher among Black respondents in every state except North Carolina.

·       Only about one-fifth of voters surveyed said they believed giving parents more choice in their children’s education would lower educational quality.
