I haven’t had much time to chew over this data because it was just released but some of the results are pretty surprising.
- 70% support public charter schools
- 62% have never heard of the Common Core State Standards
- Fewer than 25% believe increased testing will improve public schools
- Parents give their local schools an A or B rating while grading the overall system a C
- Lack of financial support is seen as the biggest problem facing public schools
If you have a couple minutes I highly recommend giving this report a look through!
