When considering the findings

BETTER UNDERSTAND OUR QUESTIONS, METHODS AND TRANSPARENCY

Every aspect of K–12 education—even school choice—deserves attention to ensure students, parents, educators and taxpayers are understood and treated fairly. Our well-sourced publications and interactive tools below will make gathering data on school choice programs and other research quicker and easier.

  • Public Opinion Tracker

    In an era where there are more polls and surveys than ever, there is still relatively infrequent attention given to the public’s opinion on schooling and K–12 education issues. Most annual polls about K–12 education release in late summer or fall. We are changing that with our new Public Opinion Tracker, updated monthly and with state-level data.
