Data-Driven Insights to Inform Education Policy

On August 25, 2010, Gallup and Phi Delta Kappa International, the world's premier professional association for educators, hosted a summit in Washington, D.C., to share new research and insights on the current state of American education. The summit focused on new findings from two national research initiatives -- Phi Delta Kappa's annual education survey, which measures public attitudes and opinions about America's public schools, and the Gallup Student Poll, a joint initiative with America's Promise Alliance and the American Association of School Administrators to measure the hope, engagement, and wellbeing of students in grades 5-12.
