Voters Not Confident in America's Public Schools
According to a new Rasmussen Reports poll, most voters don't think too highly of U.S. public schools and many believe political correctness trumps accuracy in America's textbooks.
Only 26 percent of voters say American public education is good or excellent, while 72 percent rate it as fair or poor. Sixty-one percent of voters also believe textbooks are far more concerned with reporting issues in a politically correct manner than actually providing accurate information. Only18 percent believe textbooks are more concerned with accurately providing information.
Only 25 percent of voters believe high school graduates have the skills they need for college, and only 22 percent believe most high school graduates have the necessary skills to go out into the workforce.
The national survey of 1,000 Likely Voters was conducted on June 26-27. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95 percent level of confidence.
