Earlier this week, Rasmussen Reports conducted a national survey of 1,000 likely voters. (FYI: The margin of sampling error was +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence.) They asked four questions – overall performance of public schools, college preparedness, workforce preparedness, and textbook bias.
According to a summary of the survey results,
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey shows that just 18% of Likely U.S. Voters believe most high school graduates have the skills needed for college. Sixty-one percent (61%) don’t agree. Twenty-one percent (21%) are not sure.
Unfortunately, I am not a Rasmussen subscriber, so I cannot provide crosstabs and other details.
