Poll Finds Growing Support for Charter Schools
Marty West and Paul Peterson discuss the 2010 Education Next-PEPG Survey.
The survey finds a modest uptick in support for charter schools overall, but a large increase in support in the minority community. Parents who live near a charter school are more supportive of charters than the public at large (and know more about how charters work).
