Survey: Does Education Impact Values?

Values matter most!
I want to hear your views on education.

Why this survey?

This survey has three primary purposes.

  1. To provoke parents and voters to think and to voice their views.
  2. To demonstrate that there is a diversity of values and approaches to life that are equally valid but cannot all be equally supported by a centrally controlled school system.
  3. To acquire data that can be presented to the School District to help educate them so they can better meet the needs of their community.
If after taking this survey you wish to clarify your stance I encourage you to send an essay that we can post on this site.

The first section asks you to choose between two contrasting values. Please choose based on how you really believe it should be, how you wish it could be if you were a student. Do not compromise your belief by how you think it needs to be based on current law.

Please check one box per line and answer the 2 questions at the end. If you value both the same check both of them.
