This year Education Next celebrated the tenth anniversary of its annual survey of public opinion on K-12 education policy. This year’s results from the 2016 survey were discussed in a report that includes analysis of ten-year trends in public opinion on the most important issues in education reform. Coinciding with this special release, EdNext will host an event in Washington, D.C., to discuss the findings on key issues in more depth.
