Who’s Unhappy With Schools? The Answer Surprised Me. is a must-read column in today’s NY Times.
Here are a couple of other excerpts from the piece:
…according to Gallup, which has tracked school satisfaction annually since 1999, in 2021, “73 percent of parents of school-aged children say they are satisfied with the quality of education their oldest child is receiving.”
All of this at least raises the question of whether some of the people driving the outrage, even animus, against schools might not have much skin in the game and might not have any recent experience with teachers or curriculum.
