Parent satisfaction higher in private schools

"A new report from the federal government shows that parents with children in K-12 private schools are much more satisfied with their schools than are parents with children in public schools," the Council for American Private Education reports.
Specifically, 81 percent of students in religiously affiliated schools and 82 percent of students in other private schools have parents who report being "very satisfied" with their schools, compared to 55 percent of students in assigned public schools and 63 percent of students in chosen public schools.

High levels of satisfaction among private school parents also extend to opinions about their children's teachers, academic standards of the school, order and discipline at the school, the amount of homework assigned, and interactions with school personnel.
