Ohio's Education Matters: KnowledgeWorks Foundation 2002-2003 Poll.
KnowledgeWorks Foundation, Cincinnati, OH.
This survey of Ohio adults was intended to gauge attitudes on a range of educational issues. Key findings include: (1) Ohioans are optimistic about the future; (2) they favor limiting school enrollment to 400 or less; (3) respondents believe that in addition to rebuilding the physical structure of Ohio's schools, there is a need to rebuild the social structure surrounding schools and children; (4) Ohioans continue to greatly overestimate the cost of 1 year's tuition at a public 4-year college or university by almost 2 times the actual cost; (5) respondents believe the top priority for Ohio's education spending is grades K-12; and (6) urban residents particularly favor smaller school size. Detailed findings are presented in the areas of the state of the schools, school improvement, school facilities, college and career access, funding education in Ohio, and urban district comparisons.
