Education Survey


August 30, 2022

 Suggested survey questions 

Here is a sampling of issues to begin discussion on what questions should be included in a Survey on Education. 


My hope is to send this survey out to as many teachers and others involved in education and parents with school-age children as possible.


The current thought is to ask those responding to identify the ages of the students they teach, or if parents, the grade level(s) of their children.


Please let me know your thoughts and any suggestions for other questions.


Thank you for participating in the Education Forum follow up.
