Most say EPIC's safety, academic quality better than their prior school

"An independent survey conducted by TPMA of Indianapolis for the Oklahoma Statewide Virtual Charter School Board found parents come to EPIC because of negative experiences in their prior schools and the unique opportunities online education provides," EPIC superintendent Bart Banfield writes today. The study found that nearly 40% of respondents came to EPIC because of bullying. Moreover,
Approximately 94% of TPMA’s survey respondents believe EPIC provides a safe educational environment, and nearly 60% say EPIC’s academic quality is “significantly better” than their prior school. Fewer than 1% said EPIC’s academic quality is “significantly worse.” About 80% of parents said they intend to keep their children in EPIC through graduation.
