AFPF GA School Choice Survey Reveals Widespread Support For School Choice Among Likely Voters

January 26, 2012

AFPF-Georgia’s release of a new hallmark state-wide survey reveals widespread support for School Choice among likely voters. In a press conference Wednesday, AFPF State Director Virginia Galloway revealed some of the interesting facts.

The data show that 68% of Georgians are at least aware of School Choice issues and while most feel good about how their school district is educating students, when asked for specificity, the majority (59.2%) of parents with students in school say they would be likely to change their child to a different school if money were not an issue. Overwhelmingly, 70.5% of parents agree with the statement that parents know best what their child needs and should have options for educating their child and that money should be directed to the school the parent chooses for the child.

Highlighting the legislative angle, the great majority (70.5%) say they would be more likely to vote for a candidate who supports School Choice for parents.

The statewide study, commissioned by Americans for Prosperity Foundation-Georgia, was conducted through an independent polling agency and performed using live operators across all demographic profiles with a non-partisan sample of fairly high propensity voters. The margin of error was +/- 4%.
