The American People Still Support PUBLIC Education

They are opposed to vouchers and they think their local schools are pretty good. They also want charter schools to be accountable in the same way public schools are. Notice, however, in the poll results how the majority of Americans rate their own kids' schools higher than they rate the nation's schools in general. The anomaly is the result of years of right-wing propaganda and lies about public schools. The more people see the public schools in action for themselves, the more highly they rate them.

I'm a PUBLIC SCHOOL teacher and I'm proud of it. Can you tell?
