National poll shows broad support for union positions on education issues

Read and share the results of this poll that Paul Harstad did for Democrats for Public Education. It shows broad based support for the union on education issues.

Some highlights:

  • Roughly 2/3 of Americans agree with traditionally Democratic positions when it comes to education – especially when it comes to overwhelming support for neighborhood schools and teachers.
  • Overall, 82 percent of those voters able to rate their local teachers believe them to be excellent, very good, or good.
  • Solid majorities (61 percent) back more funding for public schools – including 79 percent of Democrats, 57 percent of Independents, and even 45 percent of Republicans.

Harstad Strategic Research conducted the national telephone survey among 1,202 active voters on behalf of Democrats for Public Education from Sept. 11 to 16.
