Parent Satisfaction Highest in Private Schools

Private school parents are significantly more satisfied with the schools their children attend than are parents from other sectors, including public charter schools and public district schools. That finding comes from two new studies released by Education Next, a scholarly journal on school reform published by the Hoover Institution at Stanford University and the Harvard Program on Education Policy and Governance at the Harvard Kennedy School.

The first study looked at results from a survey, commissioned by Education Next in May and June of 2016, of a nationally representative sample of 1,571 parents with children in school. The second study analyzed results from a survey of over 17,000 families conducted in 2012 by the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES). The second study's larger sample size allowed for a deeper dive into population subgroups.

Read more about both studies in the January Issue of CAPEOutlook.

The webinar is designed to address changes to the equitable services provisions in Title I and Title VIII of the ESEA as amended by the ESSA. The guidance document supports State educational agencies (SEAs), local educational agencies (LEAs), and both public and private school officials in implementing the ESEA, as amended by the ESSA.
