Public Opinion Survey of an Extended-Suburban School District in Central Arkansas with Comparisons to the 25th Annual Phi Delta Kappa/Gallup Poll of the Public's Attitudes toward the Public Schools.
Henderson, Richard L.; And Others
In Arkansas 110 adults were asked questions over the telephone about the quality of Arkansas' educational system. The use of the data gathered through the phone survey will help enhance the effectiveness and efficiency of educational decisions made by policymakers in Arkansas. Opinions of parents and the community are generally positive. Additionally, the community conveys willingness to provide further support through tax increases to improve the quality of education in Arkansas. Data obtained through the phone survey are compared with data on national attitudes toward public schools gathered for the Annual Phi Delta Kappa/Gallup Poll of the Public's Attitudes toward Public Schools (1993). Parallel findings between the Arkansas research project and the Phi Delta Kappa poll are identified. Arkansas citizens rank the quality of the Arkansas educational system higher than the nation's schools as a whole. Attached to the survey results is an Arkansas school study council newsletter. (KDP)
