Opinions of Michigan Citizens About the Public Schools. 4th Michigan Education Poll.
Michigan State Board of Education, Lansing. Project Outreach.
This document, one of a series of public opinion surveys conducted for Project Outreach of the Michigan Board of Education, reports the results of a telephone survey of adult citizens in Michigan on their opinions about the public schools in the state. The survey was conducted in April, 1985 and a total of 801 interviews was completed. Survey results are reported for two major subgroups. The first are citizens who live in households where there are public school students. These opinions are compared with those of citizens in households where there are no public school students. These are homes in which the children, if present, are either pre-school or attend parochial or private schools. This subgroup also includes citizens with children not presently enrolled in school, or whose youngest child had graduated from high school, as well as households consisting of adults with no children. Other subgroup demographic information is shown in the composition of the sample at the end of the report. Responses are presented in tabular format and a copy of the survey instrument is included.
