2008 Public Opinion Survey on K-12 Education in Indiana

Center for Evaluation and Education Policy, Indiana University
During the course of each calendar year since 2003, staff of the Center for Evaluation & Education Policy (CEEP) at Indiana University evaluates the benefits of continuing the Annual Public Opinion Survey on K-12 Education in Indiana. In 2008, the Indiana legislature determined that school corporations would no longer use property tax revenues to support General Fund operations and state revenue sources would cover the lost funds of approximately $1.3 billion. Significant changes in economic conditions in the U.S. and within Indiana also had the potential to sway public attitudes and perceptions about government services, including K-12 public education. The report contains four chapters: (I) Introduction; (II) Methodology; (III) Summary of Statewide Findings; and (IV) Detailed Demographic Results. Chapter III and IV each contain information by: (A) Overall Evaluation of Schools; (B) School Funding; (C) School District Consolidation and Governance; (D) Charter Schools and School Choice; (E) Virtual Education; (F) High Quality Teachers; and (G) No Child Left Behind Act. Appendix A presents Summary Tables for Open-ended Question 5B; and Appendix B presents Detailed Results Tables by Question. (Contains 1 footnote and 1 table; Summary tables are unnumbered.)
