Poll Reveals Bipartisan Support for Education Reform

Marty West and Paul Peterson discuss the 2010 Education Next-PEPG Survey.

The poll finds support among both Democrats and Republicans for test-based accountability for students and schools, merit pay, and charter schools. Americans are divided along party lines over the issues of school spending and teacher tenure, however.

For more about the survey, please see “Meeting of the Minds,” by William Howell, Martin West, and Paul E. Peterson.
