A new poll from National School Choice Week uncovered that 52% of parents considered, or are considering, new schools for their children in the past year.
The poll, released Monday, asked parents with children between the ages of five and 18 if at any point in the past year they considered “finding a new or different school for any of the children” in their household? Eighteen percent of parents said they chose a new school for their kids, 20% said they looked into school choice options and decided against a switch, and 14% said they are “currently considering it.” An additional 47% of parents said they “wish [they] had more time to consider the schooling options” for their children.
The survey was conducted from Jan. 3 to Jan. 6 and was delivered to 2,715 respondents via Survey Monkey’s National Audience. The margin of error was +/- 2 percentage points.
