Today marks the launch of a first-of-its-kind new initiative for the Raise Your Hand Texas Foundation. With the release of our 2020: Texans Trust Teachers report, we are committing to an annual poll of Texans’ attitudes toward public education.
The Foundation modeled the poll after the longstanding national PDK Poll of the Public’s Attitudes Toward the Public Schools. Langer Research Associates, PDK’s polling firm and the producer of the ongoing ABC News/Washington Post poll for ABC, conducted the research.
The greater good of survey research is to give the public a voice about important issues. The results of this poll are important for our work and for the state because they represent the voices of all Texans. We hope this research may serve as a call to action as we collectively work to strengthen public education for all kids.
