BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- The 2010 Public Opinion Survey on K-12 Education in Indiana gauged the attitudes and perceptions of a representative sample of Hoosiers on key educational issues, particularly those regarding education reform issues now before the Indiana General Assembly. Respondents assigned a letter grade to Indiana's school system and their local schools. Other questions dealt with teacher evaluation, school funding, turning around failing schools, and teacher pay.
This is the seventh year that CEEP has conducted the Public Opinion Survey on K-12 Education in Indiana. More about CEEP, including complete reports of the past public opinion surveys, is available on the CEEP website, http://ceep.indiana.edu/.
