In the just released PDK survey of the Public’s Attitudes Toward the Public Schools, there is a “secret” finding showing that support for school vouchers is rising (despite the odd survey question wording). That’s due almost entirely to a sharp increase in support from Democrats and Independents, while Republican support has remained the same.
From Education Next:
“The just released PDK survey of U. S. adults reveals an upward shift in public support for vouchers of 10 percentage points over the past four years, with 8 of those percentage points gained since 2015. Meanwhile, voucher opposition fell by 18 percentage points over this same four-year time period. Although this finding is not reported by PDK in this year’s analysis of its findings, it emerges sharp and clear if one takes a close look at earlier PDK poll results.
