A survey from the University of Houston and Texas Southern surveyed 1,900 adults about the hotly contested issue of school vouchers.
According to the survey of nearly 2,000 individuals, 49% of Texans support providing low-income parents with tax-funded school vouchers to help pay for their child to attend a private or religious school. That’s compared to 27% of people who oppose it. The remaining percentage answered either “don’t know” or “neither support nor oppose.”
Here are other findings;

Among Black Texans, support for vouchers for low-income parents does not vary significantly based on gender, education, region or church attendance.
79% of Black Millennials support vouchers for low-income parents, compared to 59% of Black Gen-Xers and 42% of Black Texans who belong to the Silent Generation/Baby Boomer cohort.
