New poll: Safe and positive school environment more important than higher test scores
In evaluating school performance, registered voters in California say creating a safe and positive school environment is far more important than higher scores on standardized tests, according to a Berkeley IGS/EdSource poll. Voters also express considerable concerns about bullying, school fights and other forms of intimidation or violence on school campuses, along with harassment that students experience through social media. These are among the principal findings of the poll to be released at EdSource's 40th anniversary symposium in Oakland.
