Just Out – Highlights of the PDK/Gallup Poll

PDK/Gallup Poll of the Public’s Attitudes Toward the Public Schools

This is a wonderful resource of what the public thinks of education. There were a few surprises, especially regarding our need to educate parents about he Common Core.

Highlights of the 2013 PDK/Gallup poll/ What Americans said about the public schools

COMMON CORE

Most Americans don’t know about the Common Core and those who do don’t understand it.

SCHOOL SAFETY

Kids are safe at school. Don’t give teachers and principals guns to protect children; invest in better mental health services rather than weapons.

ONLINE LEARNING

High school students should be able to earn college credits via the Internet while attending high school.

STANDARDIZED TESTS

The significant increase in testing in the past decade has either hurt or made no difference in improving schools.

CHARTER SCHOOLS

Charter schools probably offer a better education than traditional public schools.

BIGGEST PROBLEM

Lack of financial support continues to be the biggest problem facing public schools.

TEACHER EVALUATIONS

VOUCHERS

Students’ standardized test scores should not be used to evaluate teachers. Teacher evaluations should be available to the public — and so should evaluations of doctors and police.

Don’t spend public money to send children to private schools.

CHILDREN OF ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS

Children of immigrants who are in the United States illegally should not have access to free public education.
