America’s military servicemembers are strong supporters of school choice.
A report published last month by EdChoice found that military households that were given a description of various school choice programs were far more likely to support such programs than oppose them. Seventy-two percent of respondents supported education savings accounts (ESAs), 64 percent supported school vouchers, and 63 percent supported tax-credit scholarships (TCSs). Only 15 percent of military households opposed ESAs, while only 27 percent opposed vouchers, and 23 percent TCSs.
The report found the “magnitude and intensity” of military support for choice programs “surprising” and suggestive of “military parents’ strong desire for better access to school choice options.”
