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).

For more about the survey, please see “Meeting of the Minds,” by William Howell, Martin West, and Paul E. Peterson.
