Indiana Survey Fails in Its Attempt to Inform School Choice Policy Discussions

Key Review Takeaway: Problematic data collection and weak statistical analyses tell us little about parents’ experiences with their children’s schools.

BOULDER, CO (November 21, 2017) – Why Indiana Parents Choose: A Cross-Sector Survey of Parents’ Views in a Robust School Choice Environment, authored by Andrew D. Catt and Evan Rhinesmith and published by EdChoice, presents results from a survey of K-12 parents within and across the public and private sectors.

Jeanne Powers, Professor at Arizona State University, reviewed the report and found significant problems with both the methods used to conduct the survey and the data analysis.

The report concludes that parents are highly satisfied with voucher and tax credit scholarship programs. The authors suggest that the findings support the expansion of school choice programs. However, even setting aside problems with the study’s data and methods, parent-satisfaction survey data almost always yield strongly positive findings. In fact, one underemphasized finding in this new survey is that substantial proportions of public school families—the largest constituency of K-12 parents in Indiana—did not participate in private school choice programs because they are happy with their current schools and want to support public schools.

But more importantly, Professor Powers finds that the survey and analysis fall short in four ways. First, three incompatible data collection methods were used to collect small samples of non-representative groups of Indiana parents. Second, the statistical analyses are too weak to draw clear conclusions. Third, while organized like a conventional research study, the report appears to be designed to advance an agenda rather than provide substantive answers to important policy questions. Finally, the report provides little new information about parents’ experiences with their children’s schools.

Thus, the report provides little useful information about school choice in Indiana or about public support for school choice programs.
