Public Support for Public Education; Is It Eroding?

Record #:
How strong is the public's support for its schools? To answer this question, the North Carolina Center for Public Policy Research examined data on enrollment trends, polling data, and local bond votes from 1990-1991 through 2000-2001. The Center concluded that while the public is not completely satisfied with its schools, the support for them remains strong, as evinced by rising enrollment, increased public opinion poll support, and passages of bond issues for school construction.
