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

by Sarah Darer Littman | October 3, 2014 9:00am

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. I’d planned to compare them because they told such different stories.

ConnCAN’s headline was that “Connecticut voters believe there are urgent problems in the public schools,” and further, claimed “Voters see the status quo as a problem and are looking for the pace of reform to quicken,” and “Connecticut voters are broadly supportive of the elements of reform.”

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.”
