Vast majority of Americans want failing schools fixed, not closed, poll finds
from Education Week
A new survey of public opinion about education has found that by a ratio of six to one, the American public wants schools that are falling down on the job to remain open instead of being closed. Results of the annual Phi Delta Kappa International poll about K-12 reported that 84 percent of Americans want officials to overhaul those struggling schools in some fashion, while just 14 percent say they prefer those schools to be shut down. However, the poll also found that doesn't necessarily mean the public doesn't want major changes at those schools.
