Parents of children in private and charter schools more satisfied with student progress than parents of children in public district schools

The coronavirus has had a disruptive impact on schools and education, leaving many parents frustrated over their children’s learning experience and concerned about their health and well-being. But a recent EdChoice national poll on public opinion of education shows that parental concern over student progress varies by learning environment.

Out of the nationally representative sample of 2,200 Americans polled in November, more parents of children enrolled in private and charter schools feel their children’s learning and development is progressing “very well” this school year than those with children enrolled in a public district school. Forty-seven percent of parents with children in private school said they are progressing “very well” in academic learning, followed by 34 percent of parents with children in charter schools, and 27 percent of parents with children in a district school. When asked about social development, 45 percent of parents with children in private school said they are progressing “very well,” followed by 34 percent of parents with children in charter schools, and 25 percent of parents with children in a district school. Forty-five percent of parents with children in private school also feel their children’s emotional development is progressing “very well” this school year.

Parent satisfaction overall with their children’s experiences spans across school types, but those with children attending private schools are the most likely to be “very satisfied,” followed by homeschool parents and parents with children in charter schools.
