New national poll reveals public's thoughts on education
from eSchool News
Americans have a number of conflicting viewpoints in their preferences for investing in schools, going head-to-head on issues like paying for the education of the children of illegal immigrants, according to the 2012 annual PDK/Gallup Poll of the Public's Attitudes Toward the Public Schools. There are clear partisan divides over whether children of illegal immigrants should receive free public education, school lunches and other benefits, with 65 percent of Democrats versus 21 percent of Republicans favoring it. Overall, support for providing public education to these children is increasing. Forty-one percent of Americans favor this, up from 28 percent in 1995.
