Parents in traditional public schools are less likely than those in charter and private schools to report feeling “very satisfied” with their schools’ efforts to engage with families and the surrounding community, according to a new survey conducted by researchers at Rice University.
Among parents with children in traditional public schools, 43% responded that they were very satisfied, compared to 56% of parents whose children attend charter schools and 61% of those with children in private schools. The survey of more than 7,200 parents took place from October through November and was the first use of the Collaborative for Customer-Based Execution and Strategy (C-CUBES) Benchmark K-12 School Study.
The survey is intended as an evidence-based approach to gathering input from parents and other community members for strategic planning and implementation in public schools, and a white paper on its results will be published next year. At public and charter schools, the survey shows that family and community engagement was the “largest driver” of a parent’s overall satisfaction, while in private schools, parents were focused more on teachers and safety.
