Who Should Decide Where a Child Attends School? – February Poll


February 23, 2018

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Seventy-four percent of North Carolinians feel that the parent or legal guardian are best suited to make a decision about where a child attends school. Nationally, support for school choice remains high.

Proponents of school choice often point out that greater involvement in a child’s education, especially when it comes to choosing schools, is highly beneficial for positive educational outcomes.
