American Enterprise Institute Discussion on EdChoices’ 2018 Schooling in America Survey

On December 5, EdChoice will release its sixth annual Schooling in America Survey, which measures public opinion, awareness, and knowledge of K–12 education topics and reforms. Featuring questions that address current issues in K–12 education policy, the survey gauges parents’ schooling experiences and the general public’s views on government spending, state accountability systems, testing, and school choice. This year’s report also focuses on the opinions of teachers, a key demographic that has received a lot of national media attention over the past year.

Please join AEI for a presentation of the findings, followed by an expert panel discussion of the survey’s implications for students, parents, public education supporters, reformers, policymakers, and K–12 education policy in America. A reception will follow.

Join the conversation on social media with #SchoolingInAmerica.
