NEW SURVEY: The State of Education in America

The Josephson Institute has just launched a new comprehensive survey for educators (school board members, superintendents, principals and other administrators, teachers and school staff) and parents of children in school. It is designed to be one of the most comprehensive and influential studies of the trends, opinions and actions of administrators, teachers, students and parents. We hope to have at least 15,000 responses in time to release results during CHARACTER COUNTS! Week 2013 (the third week in October). If you are an educator or parent of children in school please take a few minutes to fill out the online survey. If you are not, please forward the link (https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/JIEducatorSurvey) or post it on your Facebook page or otherwise encourage educators and parents to respond.

Take the survey here.

  1. I am not an Educator however we have 3 sons who are very successful in life with their personal/private life.
    The reason I am responding to this feedback is as follows: Our youngest son teaches and coaches in the public school system. He teaches a trade (woodworking). This is the most popular class in this High School of 2000 students. He has 150 students weekly and it reminds me of the “old days” when I attended High School in Ontario Canada.
    Michael not every student graduating can rely on a “computer” to make a living etc.
    WE NEED THE TRADES BACK IN OUR SCHOOLS! I.E. AUTO MECHANICS, WELDING, ELECRICAL, PLUMBING, WOODWORKING ETC. PLEASE COMMENT

    1. Education is not merely to prepare young people for more education (though we do believe that lifetime learning is a valuable goal) but to prepare them for life. And that certainly includes the trades.
