National poll: Public schools, teachers getting better

26

August

Americans are giving higher grades to their public schools and teachers, according to the results of an annual national survey released last week. Seventy-nine percent of respondents to the 43rd PDK/Gallup Poll on education gave their kids' school an A or B grade, up from 67 percent in 2007. Meanwhile, 69 percent gave public school teachers an A or B, up from 50 percent in 1984. Lots of interesting views in here on unions, charters, vouchers, funding, technology, Obama, etc.
