February 02, 2023: Fifty-one percent (51%) of voters think that school choice programs provide better educational opportunities for students. A Scott Rasmussen national survey found that just 19% say they do not, and 30% are not sure.
The survey also found that 57% favor the creation of more charter schools, and 60% favor voucher programs that allow tax dollars to follow children to the schools of their parents’ choice.
The survey of 1,000 registered voters was conducted online by Scott Rasmussen on January 19-20, 2023. Field work for the survey was conducted by RMG Research, Inc. Certain quotas were applied, and the sample was lightly weighted by geography, gender, age, race, education, internet usage and political party to reasonably reflect the nation’s population of registered voters. Other variables were reviewed to ensure that the final sample is representative of that population.
The margin of sampling error for the full sample is +/- 3.1 percentage points.
