28% of Americans Have Faith in Public Schools

'The extent of Republicans’ displeasure with education today is further evident in the sharp increase in those expressing very little or no confidence in public schools...'

(Molly Bruns, Headline USA) A new report found that Americans are rapidly losing confidence in the public school system.

According to Big League Politics, a recently released Gallup poll found that only 28% of Americans have “a great deal/quite a lot” of confidence in U.S. public schools in 2022.

“Americans’ confidence in U.S. public schools remains low, with 28% saying they have a great deal or quite a lot of confidence in the institution, similar to 32% last year,” Gallup reported.

“Both figures are down from 41% in 2020, reflecting a brief surge in the early months of the pandemic after registering 29% in 2019,” the report continued.

The poll also highlighted the contrast between Republicans and Democrats, with 14% and 43% having a “great deal/quite a lot of confidence in public schools” respectively.

50% of Republicans stated that they have “very little/no” confidence in the public school system, while only 16% of Democrats shared the same sentiment.

“While all political party groups expressed more confidence than usual in public schools in 2020, Republicans’ confidence has since plunged, while independents’ has dipped and Democrats’ has remained near their pandemic high,” Gallup said.

The confidence in the education system plummeted after the pandemic shut downs, virtual learning and continued masking mandates for many schools.

In fact, many school districts in Democrat-led cities are reintroducing masking mandates at school, with some officials even recommending that students who are uncomfortable wearing a mask do not return to school at all.

“The extent of Republicans’ displeasure with education today is further evident in the sharp increase in those expressing very little or no confidence in public schools,” Gallup reported.

“Half of Republicans are now this critical, up 19 points from 31% in 2019.”
