The PDK poll of public attitudes about public schools has been a steady reflection of U.S. opinion since 1969. It is the most trusted source of public opinion about K-12 education because of its rigor, depth and commitment to capturing all voices and viewpoints.
And once again, the 2017 poll shows the ideas that lawmakers often tout as being just what education needs — vouchers, public money for private schools, increased standardized testing, etc. — are not supported by the public.
