Poll: School Choice Support at All-Time High As Government Schools Abandon Education For Hard-Left Indoctrination

Public schools destroy our children, smash their ability to think, render them miserable jackboots for hard left. Look what they’ve done to our children. Think Hitler youth.

Poll: Support for School Choice Growing

As three quarters of voters support the idea, according to a RealClear Opinion poll.  Also from the story: … a majority of voters (66%) say that some or all of the COVID funds the federal government set aside for K-12 education should be directed by parents. Most voters in both parties agree parents should direct all or some of the funding.

New Poll: School Choice Support at All-Time High

Support for school choice in America continues to soar.

According to a June poll from RealClear Opinion Research, polling more than 1762 registered voters, a majority support school choice (74% vs. 16% opposed) while 10% are unsure. This is true across party lines, with 83% of Republicans, 69% of Independents, and 70% of Democrats saying they strongly or somewhat support school choice.

Additionally, a majority of voters (66%) say that some or all of the COVID funds the federal government set aside for K-12 education should be directed by parents. Most voters in both parties agree parents should direct all or some of the funding.

These results represent a marked increase in support for school choice since similar polling was conducted in April 2020. Overall support has increased from 64% to 74%; public school parent support has increased from 68% to 80%; Democrat support has increased from 59% to 70%.

Major Findings:

· 74% of voters support school choice

· 66% of voters believe parents should have access to COVID education stimulus funds

Statement from Tommy Schultz, CEO of the American Federation for Children:

“Public support for school choice is at an all-time high. And, as the nation recovers from unprecedented, nationwide school closures, a new story is unfolding. Parents are rising up and demanding the freedom to choose the best educational environment for their children. Thankfully, more and more lawmakers are listening. Already in 2021, seventeen states have passed legislation to improve, expand, or create new school choice programs.

For thousands of children, this means new opportunity and new hope for a brighter future. While we celebrate these transformative policy wins for kids, the work continues. We at AFC will continue fighting for every child in the country to have access to the American Dream through educational choice and opportunity.”
