What We’re Watching: How Are Views on Education Policy Affected By Information?

In a webinar, Professors Paul E. Peterson of Harvard University and Michael B. Henderson of the University of Mississippi present an analysis of new survey data showing how Americans’ evaluations of their local schools and their opinions on school spending, merit pay, vouchers, and other education reform issues change when they are armed with information. Joining the webinar discussion is Eric A. Hanushek, Paul and Jean Hanna Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University.

The webinar coincides with the release of the full study, “Information Fuels Support for School Reform,” by Michael B. Henderson, William G. Howell, and Paul E. Peterson.
