Parents' wishes and attitudes towards free choice of school
Deutschschweiz; Suisse romande
On behalf of the Swiss Federation of Private Schools (SFPS), an exploratory study was conducted at the Pedagogical Institute of the University of Zurich on the opinions and attitudes of the population towards private education.
The purpose of the study was to generate empirically verified data on three questions:
1. What opinions and attitudes do parents/legal guardians have on the question of free choice of school?
2. To what extent do parents/legal guardians wish for educational diversity in schools?
3. What is the opinion and attitude of parents/legal guardians regarding how private schools should be financed?
The market and social research institute LINK collected the data using a computer-assisted telephone survey of 1016 parents/legal guardians in German-speaking Switzerland and French-speaking Switzerland in February/March 2001.
