And here's a finding that we're especially excited to see: Democrats and Republicans had no statistical difference in their support of school choice options—and both equally supporting scholarship tax credit programs.
Also demonstrated in the study—without surprise—is affluent Americans have fewer complaints about the performance of their local public schools. In fact, the study states: “[A]ffluent Americans…may differ in their views of education policy in part because they are more likely to have located themselves in an area in which public school performance is less of a concern.” In other words, wealthy Americans can afford to live in areas with great public schools, while lower-income families often cannot. A strong reason for Americans to support—and a majority of non-teachers do—means-tested vouchers.
