Parents prefer private schools


While more than eight out of 10 U.S. students attends a district-run public school, 42 percent of parents would prefer private school, 15 percent a charter and 7 percent homeschooling, according to EdChoice’s 2017 Schooling in America Survey. One third of parents said a traditional public school is their first choice.

Ninety-three percent of private-school parents and 90 percent of homeschoolers were satisfied with their children’s education, compared to 75 percent of charter-school parents and 73 percent of parents with a child in a traditional public school.

More than 60 percent of parents favored education savings accounts, vouchers, tax-credit scholarships and charter schools, EdChoice reports.
