Just waiting to be asked

author: Public Agenda Online
description: "Advocates of "public engagement" believe education reforms will be more likely to succeed if the public's concerns are more clearly heard. But how much do educators really want the input? And how much does the public really want to give? In Public Agenda's latest study, Just Waiting to Be Asked?, we found that school leaders say they want to hear from the public, but also say school board meetings are dominated by the most vocal and disgruntled citizens. Among the public, those who rate their local schools the lowest are the most likely to want greater involvement."
