Parents in Indiana continue to demand quality educational choices for their children… and enrollment numbers show that.
Indiana’s scholarship program, currently the fourth largest in the country, has more than doubled in enrollment this year to 9,000 participants.
Jeff Reed woth the Friedman Foundation says the numbers show parents understand the need for more quality options. “Their parents took the time to see what was available, and they found that their public schools weren’t working for them … so they opted to receive scholarships. And now they’re in private schools that are better fit — and frankly, that’s the way it should work. It should work that way for every family.”
Thirty-two private school-choice programs are now available as options in 16 states and Washington, DC. In 2011, over 210,000 children participated across the country.
