This report presents the data gathered from a telephone survey of a representative national sample of 1115 teenagers concerning their attitudes toward public schools and public education.

In addition to the national findings for each question, the data presented are broken down into the following categories: sex, age, academic standing, occupation of chief wage earner, parent's education, race, religion, region, mother's employment status, city size, and college plans.
