Link to Full American Population Purpose of Education Survey Report

Main conclusions of this report:
1) College Should No Longer Be the End Goal of K-12 Education.
2) Practical Skills & Outcomes Should Be the End Goal.
3) Individualized Education Is the Future, One-Size-Fits-All Is the Past.
4) Education Priorities Vary Immensely by Race.
5) “Better” Is No Longer the Goal — “Different” Is the Goal.

How this report was generated:
This report is a national private opinion quantitative survey that surfaces what, if given the opportunity, the American public would prioritize — and what they believe most others would prioritize — in the K-12 education system in America. It was conducted by the think tank Populace, powered by the research data company YouGov. Ab

The primary survey component was a choice-based conjoint (CBC) instrument that distinguishes between personal priorities and perceived societal priorities (what respondents believe most other people prioritize). Rather than directly asking respondents what priorities they hold for the K-12 education system in America, this survey’s CBC simulated real-world decision making by forcing respondents to make trade-offs. This not only reduces the ceiling effect, where respondents can claim everything is important, but also minimizes social desirability effects. For more information about the CBC, see the methodology section.

In addition to summarizing Americans’ 2022 priorities for K-12 education, the report also examines changes in priorities over time. The Purpose of Education Index was deployed in each of the previous four years spanning 2019 to 2022, allowing for an investigation of the trends over time, especially as they relate to effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. How it was conducted: Survey conducted: 12 to 30 September 2022
