AACTE Sheds Light on Entry Requirements Raised in PDK/Gallup Poll

The 44th annual Phi Delta Kappa (PDK)/Gallup Poll of the Public’s Attitudes Toward the Public Schools was recently released, highlighting Americans’ points of agreement and difference on education across the political spectrum. The accompanying report, Public Education in the United States: A Nation Divided, showed split opinions on issues including teacher evaluations and school choice vouchers, as well as shared views on the benefits of the Common Core State Standards confidence in public school teachers.
