The Friedman Foundation for Educational Choice just released results from a new poll of adults which includes something rather special, a separate set of data on what moms want for their kids.
Here’s a survey question about school vouchers and what moms and non-moms responded.
So, what else do moms want? Freidman’s press release says:
• 71 percent of moms said they believe school vouchers should be available to all families regardless of income or special needs
• Only 30 percent of mothers said that vouchers should be based on “financial need” compared to 71 percent of moms who said they should be available to “all families
• 65 percent of moms graded their area public schools “A” or “B” compared to 83 percent of moms who gave the same high marks to parochial or private schools
You can find the full documentation for this survey here. It’s an interesting read.
