Public opinion poll shows parents’ views on education, family engagement

The W.K. Kellogg Foundation (WKKF) commissioned a recent public opinion poll* of 1,000 parents nationwide to illustrate some of the attitudes among parents surrounding family engagement.

WKKF defines transformative family engagement as a shared responsibility of families, schools and communities aimed at helping students learn and achieve. It is a continuous process from birth to third grade and beyond, and occurs across all the settings where children learn — creating environments that support parents and families as strong leaders and advocates for their children.

View the topline findings of the public opinion poll and a few graphs that further illustrate some of these findings.

*This survey was conducted on behalf of WKKF by ORC International among 1,000 parents of children ages 6-17 in the United States, using a representative online sample, from July 1-8, 2014, and has a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points.
