The Spring 2017 issue of EducationNext, A Journal of Opinion and Research has two articles about how parents think about their children’s schools.
The first article entitled, “What do Parents Think of Their Children’s Schools: EdNext Poll, compares charter, traditional district, and private school parent thoughts nationwide. The second, “How Satisfied are Parents with their Children’s Schools” is based on the results of a U.S. Department of Education survey.
In both of the Poll and Survey charter schools on a wide variety of measures rank between private and traditional district schools in terms of parent satisfaction. The only areas that charter schools ranked lower than traditional districts were in terms of parental satisfaction about school locations, and the availability of extracurricular activities.
