A Think Twice Review of:

Reports on 10 state public opinion surveys on K-12 school choice

Think Twice - Dec 02, 2008

Publisher/Think Tank - The Friedman Foundation for Education Choice

Author(s) -

This is a series of reports based on public opinion polls in 10 states that claim that voters view public schools as unsatisfactory, that they prefer private over public schools, that vouchers should be available and that potential voters are more likely to support candidates who support school choice proposals.

Reviewer(s) - Jon Lorence and A. Gary Dworkin, University of Houston

In their review of this report, Lorence and Dworkin find that the conclusions drawn by the reports are suspect due to several factors including poorly worded and biased questions and sampling problems.
