Wide Range of Education Opinions in new Poll
A new poll shows a wide range of views regarding religion, sex and curriculum standards in Texas classrooms. There is strong support for teaching contraception in sex education classes but also strong support for more religious influence in the classroom. A poll paid for by the Texas Freedom Network also showed 55 percent opposition to vouchers and says pollster Anna Greenburg strong support for teachers and scholars writing curriculum standards and not the elected State Board of Education. “Whatever group you want to look at, even the most conservative group, believes these decisions should be made by teachers and scholars.” This poll was done during the height of the social studies curriculum battle in May and talked to 972 likely voters from all political backgrounds.
