The Center for Education Reform (CER) released its 2017 Parent Power! Index (PPI), the nation’s foremost study of a parent’s ability to exercise educational options for their children. The Index scores each state, along with the District of Columbia, from 0-100. This year’s leaders are Florida, Indiana, and Arizona, while those with the least parent power are North Dakota, Nebraska, and Alaska. Indiana ranked second due to the state’s robust efforts to offered education opportunity. Parents have a great amount of power through a statewide program, offering numerous choices, more digital-learning opportunities than most states, and has a considerable record of teacher quality measures. The score breakdown includes school choice, charter schools, online learning, teacher quality, and transparency.
