Most Still Favor Parental Choice in Schools

Voters remain critical of the nation’s public schools and still strongly favor giving parents choices when it comes to their children's education. 

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just 29% of Likely U.S.Voters rate the performance of public schools in America today as good or excellent, while just as many (30%) rate it poorly. These attitudes have changed little in regular surveys since 2012. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
