Education policy panels tend to be posturing, jargon-heavy affairs, however on Wednesday, Connecticut mom and president of the CT Parents Union, Gwen Samuels, brought some much needed real talk to the American Enterprise Institute’s (AEI) panel on “Schools in America.”
Check out her comments linked in the video below:
The AEI panel discussion centered on a recently released EdChoice survey that focused on examining public opinion, awareness, and knowledge of K-12 education policy. Much of the survey looks at how parents view different types of schools; for example, whether parents favor district, public or private schools. The survey also looks at parent satisfaction and their views on the federal government’s role in education.
It’s all interesting stuff and I encourage you to take a look for youself — the full pdf is below.
