What Parents Want Survey
What Parents Want – an Independent Schools Queensland Survey examines the decision-making process parents undertake when choosing an independent school, including cultural influences, varying sources of information, and the relative importance of a myriad of factors that can guide school choice.
Between 30 April to 8 June 2018 independent school parents were invited to take part in the latest survey - the fourth in a series of surveys ISQ has commissioned over the past 12 years - to provide valuable insights into their school selection choices.
