In June 2016, the Friedman Foundation for Educational Choice released “Why Parents Choose,” a survey of more than 2,000 Indiana private school and school choice parents on Tuesday. Indiana is home to the nation’s fastest-growing school choice program and the largest voucher program in the United States.
The survey found that a large majority of choice parents are satisfied with their new schools and were easily able to find a suitable private school that participates in the state’s voucher or tax-credit scholarship program. Additionally, parents reported becoming more engaged in their schools and communities after they chose a private school.
Friedman Foundation president and CEO Robert Enlow discussed the report at a media roundtable in Indianapolis.
