Fifty-five percent of North Carolinians believe the state’s educational system is on the wrong track. If given a chance to select schools for their children, 34 percent of North Carolina voters would choose a traditional public school.
Those are two of the findings of a new poll by the Civitas Institute and the Friedman Foundation. The poll highlights a “disconnect” between where North Carolina children currently go to school and where — if given a choice — parents would like their children to attend school.
The poll results, and their implications will be the subject of a September 18th noontime luncheon discussion by education reform experts and North Carolina law makers. Speakers include Paul Di Perna, (Friedman Foundation) , Lindsey Burke, (Heritage Foundation) and Terry Stoops (John Locke Foundation).
For more information and to register.
The full poll results will be available on the Civitas web site on Thursday.
