Families Vote with Their Feet on Education

A new report, “Voting with Their Feet,” shows hundreds of thousands of families switched to charter schools during the first full school year of the COVID pandemic. According to data compiled by the National Alliance for Public Charter Schools, during the 2020-21 school year, charter school enrollment grew 7%, the largest increase in half a decade. Nearly 240,000 new students enrolled in these innovative, student-centered public schools, despite a sharp decrease in overall public school enrollment during the same period. 


Of the 42 states evaluated, 39 experienced charter school enrollment increases, while only three saw modest decreases. By comparison, district school enrollment dropped precipitously in every state. During the 2020-21 school year, the pandemic forced schools of all types to close their doors and switch to remote learning. Many families were dissatisfied with the quality of what was available to their children. And that dissatisfaction led them to learn more about the other educational options available. 


For many families, charter schools’ nimbleness and flexibility made them the right public school choice.
