Summary
This special-topic poll is part of a continuing series of monthly surveys that solicit public opinion on the presidency and on a range of other political and social issues. This data collection focuses on perceptions of education in the United States. The poll consisted of interviews with school principals and the general population. The data are contained in two datasets. Part 1, Principals Survey, contains data on the number and racial mix of students in the respondents' schools. Respondents were also questioned about discipline problems, competency tests, busing to achieve integration, television and homework, parental involvement in school decision-making, budget cutbacks, school performance, and their personal occupational history. Part 2, General Public Survey, contains information on the respondents' confidence levels in public institutions, perceived problems in their local high school, the value of school programs, functions of schools, educational discipline, the education of their children, and their opinions of President Ronald Reagan. Demographic information was collected, including respondents' sex, age, race, occupation, education and income levels, marital status, number of children, political party identification, and voting behavior....
