Just in (no surprise): voters want more choice and accountability in education

There was a time, many moons ago, when people had confidence in public education to provide the best for their kids – but high cost and low performance has a way of changing things as exhibited by a recent survey from our friends at RI-CAN:

  • Super Leaders. Over 75 percent of voters think the leaders of Rhode Island’s public schools should keep the momentum of education reform by implementing the state’s Race to the Top plan.
  • Super Schoolhouses. 60 percent of voters think public charter schools should be reimbursed for their school building costs at an equal rate to traditional public schools.
  • Super Readers. 93 percent of voters support requiring Rhode Island teachers to pass a reading proficiency test before they can teach elementary school students.
