Public Education Messaging Tools and Resources

Knowledge Center

The Z. Smith Reynolds Foundation recently commissioned a statewide survey on voter perceptions of public education in North Carolina (April 2015) as a follow-up to a 2013 statewide survey on the same subject. The results show that North Carolina voters strongly value local public schools, support greater investments in overall funding and want more investment in teachers. The most recent survey shows great concern that state education policy and funding are undermining the public's desire to ensure that each child is challenged to grow and is prepared for success in college, career and life.
