Author(s) - Rebecca Silliman and David Schleifer

A recent report from Public Agenda compiled public opinion surveys to show where the American public stands on education issues. The report notes the importance of gauging current public understandings about education, particularly given three major policy changes in the past 10 years: Race to the Top, the Common Core State Standards, and the Every Student Succeeds Act.

Though a unique contribution, report's inconsistency and lack of clarity make many of its conclusions questionable.
