PDK Poll Results Reveal Attitudes on Public Education

August 3, 2017 Resources

Survey results from Phi Delta Kappa International (PDK) Poll of Public’s Attitudes Towards Public Schools indicate that Americans believe local public schools should provide wraparound services, including mental health programs and after-school programs. The report shows public interest in educators helping students develop their interpersonal skills while limiting standardized testing. Respondents also place a strong importance on developing career skills, licensing, and certificate programs. PDK has annually conducted this survey of public schools since 1969.
