The Friedman survey
The results of NPRI's statewide survey on Nevadans' attitudes on education, conducted along with the Friedman Foundation for Educational Choice, are in, and they paint a not-so-pretty picture for the state's education establishment. (Click here to download the survey).
Of particular note: Given a list of several types of schools, only 11 percent of respondents said they would choose to send their own children to a regular public school. This means that the vast majority of Nevada students are being forced into a system that very, very few of them want any part of. The top choice? Private schools, which were the preference of 48 percent.
