SPRINGFIELD, Ill. – The Barna Group has released their latest polling on “Faith & Culture Trends” for 2014.
Barna found that while a majority of people of faith entrust their child’s future to the public school systems, more and more are feeling conflicted about this course of action for their child.
Barna’s study highlights two major perceptions when it comes to America’s public schools—both negative. First, nearly half of adults (46%) believe public schools have only gotten worse in the past five years. And while more than eight out of 10 adults with school-aged children send their kids to public school, only 26% of those parents say public school is their first choice.
