Schooling in America Polling Dashboard

EdChoice and Braun Research have polled a representative sample of Americans—plus a number of special subgroups—on K–12 education issues for the better part of a decade. Click to view this dashboard of our flagship annual survey and even mine past year’s reports.

EdChoice Public Opinion Tracker

Our Public Opinion Tracker, powered by Morning Consult, posts updated findings from our polling of Americans and school parents on timely education-related questions every month. We update our polling of K–12 teachers quarterly. You can also find state-level results and special subgroup survey reports.

Project Nickel

We think it should be easy for the public—from parents and journalists to policymakers—to see what public schools spend and where that money goes. That’s where ProjectNickel.com comes in Search your school to see what they spend per student and compare to other schools nearby, schools in other districts and even schools in other states.
