Summary

Due to limited time and money, this feasibility study focused primarily on the desirability of using vouchers as that desirability could be measured in the awareness, acceptance, and willingness of inner-city Garyites to participate in an education voucher pilot program. The study began with a two-month information campaign to inform Garyites about vouchers, followed by a survey to measure the awareness and attitudes of different segments of the community. Useable data were collected from 498 parents and inner-city residents and 343 school employees, including teachers, principals, and central office administrators. Findings showed that 56.5 percent of the community residents surveyed had not heard of the education voucher program; nonetheless, 53.8 percent indicated they would be willing to participate, while 31.5 percent were undecided. Only 8.2 percent of the teachers and 5.7 percent of the principals surveyed were unaware of the voucher program, and 47.3 percent of the teachers and 74.1 percent of the principals were willing to participate. The undecided were 39.1 percent of the teachers and 14.3 percent of the principals. (JG)
