Parents Still Like Their Kids’ Schools

As children start returning to school, most parents continue to think highly of their local schools.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 72% of parents with school-aged children rate the performance of their child’s school as good or excellent, including 36% who give it an excellent rating. Just eight percent (8%) give their child’s school poor marks. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
