A new report from the Friedman Foundation shows that RI’ers overwhelmingly want school choice. Among some of the results –

More than eight out of ten Rhode Islanders (83 percent) prefer choosing a school for their child among options that include private schools, charter schools, virtual schools, and homeschooling.  This figure is consistent with previous state surveys asking the same question, most recently in Vermont (89 percent), Oregon (87 percent), Montana (90 percent), and Maryland (82 percent). 

The complete study can be found HERE.
