Keeping Our Edge: Hispanic Americans Speak on Education and Competitiveness
Educational Testing Service
From May 22 to June 8, 2006, Peter D. Hart Research Associates, Inc., and The Winston Group conducted a national survey among 1,215 respondents nationwide, including 703 members of the general public (123 Hispanics) and 512 parents of K-12 students (301 parents of public high school students), and among 150 high school administrators, 150 high school teachers, 231 public high school students, 151 college faculty, and 151 business and opinion leaders. Like Americans in general, Hispanic Americans recognize the important role that public schools play in contributing to our nation's achievements, and they are concerned about our ability to remain competitive unless our schools improve and challenge students more. Despite major reform efforts at the national and state levels, Hispanic Americans give our schools mediocre ratings at best, and they are more likely than the general public to favor proposals that push for higher academic standards.
