Education Next conducted a survey.(educationnext.org)
80% of students attend traditional public schools. 10% private. 6% charters. The rest mostly home school and not included.
They measured 8 areas of parent satisfaction (teacher quality, school discipline, achievement expectations, safety, character/values, location, diversity, and facilities).
In every area private schools came in first (lowest were diversity and facilities).
In every area, charters came in second (same lowest areas as private)
In every area, public ranked third (highest scores were location and facilities - lowest was discipline).
Are these perceptions accurate? Not sure, but it is how parents feel.
