Every year a Phi Delta Kappa/Gallup Poll is done on “Public Attitudes Toward The Public Schools.” This year’s results were released a couple of months ago.
This is one question that was included:
I am going to read several factors. For each, tell me how important you think that factor is in keeping public schools moving on the right track?
People were then given a list of these options to choose from:
Better Use of Technology
More Parent Support
More School Choice
“More Parent Support” was identified as the most important factor in keeping schools moving on the right track. 85% of respondents identified it as “very important.”
