In two previous white papers, ISM discussed whether the recent recession and subsequent recovery has impacted private-independent school enrollments. Despite data from ISM's recent parent reenrollment surveys and three tuition elasticity studies (all suggesting that the enrollment intentions of parents remains strong and that tuition and enrollment are not correlated), many school leaders continue to question independent school sustainability. This report focuses on five sustainability concerns that ISM most frequently hears and addresses each in turn. The conclusion is that hysteria over independent school sustainability is not warranted.
