Providing clear and timely information will be a key to holding public support for the improvements the No Child Left Behind Act promises. To have an impact, this information needs to be presented on the publics terms. This report contains data on recent public opinion about education issues, gathered from several polls conducted by national organizations. Graphs show that improving schools is a top priority, and that the public generally agrees that change is needed. There is strong support for the reforms in the new federal law, especially for requiring teachers to be licensed in the subjects they teach. There is strong support for closing the achievement gap, but most attribute the gap to factors outside school walls. The public strongly supports standards and accountability, but support for testing has limits. Testing in moderation is supported, and using test scores in addition to teacher evaluations receives public support. The public generally believes that education should be protected from budget cuts, and support for education outweighs support for all other spending priorities combined. Teacher support for standards, testing, and accountability is waning, in comparison with 1999 findings. Teachers think parent involvement and lack of discipline are top problems facing schools. Students take learning seriously, but feel that too much emphasis is placed on test scores. (Contains 12 references.) (SLD)
