Summary

The annual National Education Association opinion polls provide data comparing opinions held by the public and teachers on current and ongoing issues of concern to the education community. The 1987 polls focused on priorities for federal, state, and local government expenditures, on measures to improve education in the basics, and on sources of discipline problems in the schools. This year's surveys also explored opinions regarding several recommendations to ensure teacher competence, the importance of having certified teachers in every classroom, and the value of various indicators of public school performance. This report first presents highlights of the results of the survey and a description of the sample. It is organized into several sections: (1) priorities for government expenditure; (2) K-12 teacher compensation; (3) willingness to pay for increases in teachers' salaries; (4) improving the quality of education; (5) improving the quality of teaching; (6) discipline in the schools; and (7) public/private school enrollment patterns.
