Voices for the Common Good: America Speaks Out on Education

This United Way Worldwide report highlights the voices of everyday Americans concerned about education in the United States. Above all, the opinion was that there is so much acrimony, divisiveness and negativity in our debates on the issues of education. Everyday people are hungry to get past the posturing and get on to doing whatever it takes to set children up for success. While so much attention lately has been placed on schools, the people in this report said that while schools play an important role, communities and indivduals have to step forward in a different way.

This report shares the aspirations and concerns of everyday people across America about their communities and what it will take for children to succeed in life. It's based on a series of community conversations local United Ways hosted across the country last fall, as well as on some focus groups and a national poll.

Hope, Wellbeing and Engagement Data Sheets

Gallup has harnessed years of research and development, and distilled three key indicators of student success into a single metric. The Gallup Student Poll adds clarity to the discussion around the purpose and utility of non-cognitive measures and their relevance to student success. The poll measures student hope for the future, engagement with school, and wellbeing - factors that have been shown to drive students' grades, achievement scores, retention, and future employment.

Hope - the ideas and energy we have for the future.
