Purpose:

As future educators, our purpose is to determine whether students are more academically successful depending upon what type of school they attend. We would like to determine are students more likely to attend college depending whether they attend public, private, charter, or home schooling. In  our view private and charter school students are taught with more rigorous academics, and are more prepared for college. Whereas, public schools are more lenient on what students learn, and what choices they make. As future educators we would like to influence more students to succeed in school and go to college. The purpose of our study is to determine which type of school, we as educators would have a more positive influence. In this survey, we analyzed a sample of students who have had some form of education.

In this analysis, we used pie charts as a descriptive measure. Pie charts was a more accurate way to organize and summarize our data. Statistics are more factual evidence. The first pie chart shows the percentages of students and the type of school they attended. In the second pie chart, our main variable public schools, we showed the success of public school students from whether they graduated from high school and went off to college.

Conclusion: In our original hypothesis we believed that students who attend private or charter schools were more likely to graduate and attend college. Based on our data, we found that public school students are more likely to graduate and attend college. In conclusion we would prefer to teach at schools where we would  motivate and encourage students not only to succeed in school, but also go off to college and succeed there as well.
