OP-ED | ‘Lies, Damned Lies and Statistics’

I had a very different column planned. In the last week, two polls were released on education, one by Benenson Strategy Group for the charter advocacy group ConnCAN, and another by Hartstad Strategic Research on behalf of a new 527 advocacy group, Democrats for Public Education.

Meanwhile, the Democrats for Public Education declared: “Those Slamming Public Ed Out-of-Step With Parents & Voters,” and “overall 82 percent of those voters able to rate their local teachers believe them to be excellent, very good, or good.”

“I’ve seen an awful lot of polling through the years, and any politician or elected official would love to have the favorability ratings enjoyed by local public schools and teachers in this survey,” said DPE President Steve Rosenthal. “The facts are on our side, and we are beyond pleased with these findings.”
