This survey is a companion to a survey of educators that asks them to assess their performance and to give their opinions on what is important in education today. We think the point of view of parents and caregivers of school children is a vital part of the entire picture and we thank you for taking the time to complete this survey. The more responses we receive, the louder your voice becomes.

Please help us reach our goal of at least 5,000 responses by sharing the link below with other parents. This survey will be conducted biennially as a companion to Josephson Institute's Report Card on the Ethics of American Youth.
