7,922 views

Published on

EdChoice’s annual national survey of Americans on education issues is back with a new demographic breakout and new parent questions. As part of our 2016 Schooling in America Survey, we oversampled Millennials in an effort to better understand where this generation of current and future school parents compares with others (and the national average) on K–12 education policies. This is also the first year we asked parents specific questions about the lengths to which they’ve gone for their children’s education. Flip through the slide show below to learn and share these top findings:
