Parents’ Perceptions of Their Child’s School

Exhibit 6.1 shows that parents reported positive perceptions about their children’s school. Nearly two-thirds of the fourth grade students (65%) had parents who were Very Satisfied and another 30 percent had parents who were Somewhat Satisfied. Those students had higher average reading achievement (515 and 509) than the 5 percent of students whose parents were Less than Satisfied (500).
